What inspired you to get into gymnastics and how old were you?

I was 6 years old and my mother introduced me to gymnastics.

What’s it like traveling internationally for gymnastics?

It is always exciting to meet new friends around the world and to see what they have achieved in the sport.

Do you have a favorite gymnastics routine?

I like my Spanish hoop routine. I did it right before covid hit and was about to compete it in 2020.

How long have you been training with ALDC for?

We have been taking classes with Ms. Abby and Ms. Gianna for a year but we have been competing with ALDC this competition season for the first time.

What’s it like training with Abby and the ALDC Dance Family?

I like the dance community at ALDC. They are some of the kindest and most hardworking girls I know. I get a lot of questions if Abby is mean. She is NOT mean at all. She is very knowledgeable and has high expectations for people who compete for ALDC but please don’t be intimidated, EVERYONE can benefit from training with Ms. Abby and Ms. Gianna.

What’s the training schedule like for gymnastics vs dance?

Rhythmic gymnastics training starts with warmup, then flexibility and body difficulty. Then you work with your apparatus and when you go over your routines for an hour. The average training for a competitive rhythmic gymnast is four hours a day, six days a week. Members of national teams in the leading countries train eight hours a day, and they live together at the training facilities.

For dancers in America, it depends on the level you are at. Competition dancers at elite studios take lyrical, jazz, ballet, contemporary, and tap classes. The more ballet classes you take the better your technique is. In dance, you typically have many teachers while in rhythmic gymnastics you have one coach throughout your career.
