Gymnastics Show Routines: Know Before You Watch!

Hey there! The videos you're about to access showcase the routines exclusively for our Junior PowerKids and PowerKids students.


  • If your child is part of other classes like Preschool, Ninja, Tramp and Tumbling, Hot Shots or PowerKids Level 4-5, they have different routines. Always feel free to ask us to record them for home practice.

  • These videos are for reference only. Always refer to your instructor for detailed guidance.

  • We design these routines to bolster confidence, letting students shine without the pressure. It's all about enjoying the performance!

  • On the day, our dedicated coaches are right there to help with routine reminders, provide spotting, and offer tons of encouragement.

  • And guess what? There are no numerical scores here – just signs of love and encouragement. Let's cheer for every performer!


Now, enjoy the routines and let's get inspired together!

Preschoolers will be released to parents after their performance, and will be chaperoned through the trunk or treat stations as a group. Please bring a small trick or treat bag!
