Training Camp The Best Yet

The 2nd Gymnastics Ontario Acrobatic Gymnastics Training Camp hosted by Gymnastics Mississauga and in partnership with Gymnastics Canada and Cirque du Soleil was the best training camp yet.  We had almost 50 athletes participate and over 10 coaches learning from our clinicians from CDS.  The three day camp was full of acrobatic instruction, dance and artistry experiences and general enthusiasm for the newest gymnastics discipline in Canada. 

A big thank you goes to Gymnastics Mississauga for being such a fantastic and welcoming host for the event.  The space was great and everyone at Gymnastics Mississauga was so willing to share space. 

Thank you to Ren Torosyants for helping out with the camp and being so energetic throughout the weekend motivating the participants to work harder and try new things.

Our main clinicians from Cirque du Soleil were Caitlin Maggs and Alexei Karuline.  They were fantastic and very well received by the athletes and coaches.  I will post separate bios on these two individuals in subsequent posts.

Here are a few pictures from the event.  More will follow as I have close to 1000 photos and videos of all the 19 routines performed on the final day of the camp. 

Thank you to Gymnastics Canada for supporting this event and providing the connection to CDS.

Thank you to all of the participants and their families for attending.  You are the beginning and the future of Acrobatic Gymnastics in Canada.
