It was so worth the drive from Maryland. Continued
success in all that you do! We love you all!
Cheryl & Carrie
Diane & Jeff,

fun, excitement and of course, STUDENTS! You
offer an amazing new curriculum. From Aerial
Arts, to Circus Arts to Contortion to Lyrical
and of course GYMNASTICS! We love being part
of your new facility! Our old facility was nice,
but it truly cannot compare to your wonderful
new training center. Thanks again.

Dear Art of Gymnastics & Cheer,
I didn’t think it was
possible, but you managed to create a show that
was even better than last year’s! There
was something for everyone, from the adorable
little ones to your powerful alumni, and everyone
in between! You continue to produce powerful
tumblers, crazy contortionists, strong hand
balancers, excellent dancers, and even aerial
artists. Below are just a few quotes from audience
members I had the privilege to overhear:
“The Pointe number was
so cool! Usually Pointe is slow and predictable,
but this was upbeat and like nothing I had ever
seen. It was so entertaining to watch.”
“I have such a connection to the Spiderman
movies, and this number was amazing! It really
embodied the essence of Spiderman.”
“I’ve been to a lot of local recitals,
and NO ONE has anything like what I saw in Contortion
Construction. I’ve never seen anyone around
here do aerial arts. That number was unbelievable!”
“The alumni from Wilmington
University were amazing! The fact that they
come back for guest appearances really says
a lot about their allegiance to the studio and
Art of Gymnastics & Cheer,
Those of us who know everything you went through
this year with the props truly know what a feat
it had to be to outdo yourself this year. The
fact that you had SO MUCH support from your
studio’s parents and the community members
says a lot about you. You have so much love
and loyalty on your team, and I know you appreciate
it, but you should also be proud because of
what it says about YOU!
You continue to do what great
leaders do: surround yourself with professionals
who are experts at what they do so that you
and they can bring out the best in your students.
Your studio is already so strong, but I know
it is going to continue to get even stronger,
and we are so happy to be along for the ride.
The Wright Family
All businesses must continue to evolve, and
status quo just does not cut it in today's competitive
world. This is a concept you and your staff
obviously believe in. As you know, my professional
life has kept me from being able to spend more
time at the studio this season. So I was very
impressed to see the number of new students
at the recital. I had time to "smell the
roses", since recital wasn't as busy for
us, and I enjoyed having the opportunity to
be wowed by the many new dance numbers at so
many different levels. From Contemporary to
Pointe to Lyrical and the many levels of Tap
and Ballet, the dancing, in my unprofessional
opinion, was impeccable. Your tumbling, handbalancing
and contortion remain unmatched. My friends
and family couldn't rave enough. The students'
performances are a direct reflection of each
teacher's hard work and dedication, which is
a direct reflection of that of their leader,
you! Your vision never ceases to amaze me. Every
year you make every number correlate to a fun
theme, and this year was no exception. How do
you make a handbalancing routine coordinate
with the holidays? Why, walking in a winter
wonderland, complete with snow, of course! Thanks
for putting together another terrific show and
another successful year of personal growth for
we're so proud of you, Jeff! Last night was
a magnificent achievement! It was our pleasure
to come. The variety of performance, the costumes,
the sets, the wonderful children and youth and
your leadership made for a genuinely remarkable
performance. Congratulations! My lasting impression
is that of the extraordinary effort contributed
by all involved.

ART OF GYMNASTICS IS AMAZING!!!! I have only
been there for about 2 months and my daughter
has learned so much! Not only did she learn
so much but you have built up her confidence!!
She came home from school yesterday and said
that she is going to do a solo contortion/ gymnastics
number in her talent show.... that she is going
to choreograph herself!! I love that she even
has the confidence to do this... I love your
gym and all the teachers!! My 8 year old rocks
and so does the AOGAC!!
Art of Gymnastics and Cheer,
Thank you so much for sponsoring me as a St.
Joseph's University Hawk Cheerleader. Thanks
to your generous sponsorship in March I will
travel to Daytona, Florida where my squad and
I will compete against more than 50 Division
One collegiate cheer teams for a national title.
Also, if it was not for the extensive training
Art of Gymnastics and Cheer has given me through
the years, I would never be able to say that.
Your Academy is an amazing place where kids
of all ages can come together and learn important
skills that not only open doors for other opportunities,
like collegiate cheerleading, but also how to
work together as a team and people skills that
every person needs when they enter the harsh
world of college and career hunting. My training
at the Art. of Gymnastics and Cheer boosted
my self- esteem and gave me the courage to try
out for Hawk cheerleading. My technique, I am
confident to say is above and beyond what is
expected of cheerleaders, because of my acrobatic
training. Thank you again for providing me the
physical education I needed to become a Division
Thank you also to my coaches at Art of Gymnastics
and Cheer for never giving up on me and providing
me with the skills to compete to the best of
my ability. If it was not for these amazingly
trained staff members, I would still be doing
forward rolls and cart-wheels. Another thanks
to my team members who were always there to
support me and cheer me on throughout every
competition. Even though I have graduated from
competing with the Art of Gymnastics and Cheer,
my heart will always be in the studio with my
former coaches, team mates, and students. I
wish you all the best and I know that everyone
will see the talent that emerges from this studio
this year and many years to come as well.
Morgan L. Kimmerle

My daughter just signed up for your winter session!
She is loving every minute of it. Your classes
are fun and she is excited and energized when
she comes there. Thank you for a great "boost" for her self esteem!
Art of Gymnastics,
My name is Devon H. I am very honored to be
selected as your student of the month for October.
I have worked very hard since starting at the
gym and I am very glad that my teachers have
recognized the effort I have put into this.
There are 238 other students at your gym. Some
of which are much more talented gymnast than
I am, but to have been chosen over all of those
other students is quite an honor. I am especially
excited for this award because I am a new student
at the gym and I was afraid when I first started
that I would not fit in or I would fall flat
on my face. I started taking gymnastics this
year to improve my basketball cheerleading skills,
but I have learned so much more than that. I
have learned that with hard work and a never
say "I can't" attitude, I can accomplish
anything.....Thank you once again.
Art of Gymnastics & Cheer Staff,
I am just writing to let you know that myself,
and the crowd (obviously by their thunderous
applause!!) LOVED your performance in the Cape
May Halloween Parade yesterday. My daughter
is 7 and was memorized by your students flips,
tosses and dance. That little girl in the air
doing her trapeze work was beautiful and graceful
too. How ingenious it was to bring a portable
trapeze device! It was like something right
from Cirque Du Soleil. We received a coupon
for a free class and will be trying a class
to begin in November. Thanks Again, you are
Cape May Native
Just a note of Thanks for a wonderful
Halloween party on Friday night. The kids had
a lot of fun. Also, your performance at the
Cape May Halloween parade was fantastic today.
Your hard work and dedication shines through
when you perform. A job well done kids!! You
should be proud:-)
I want to simply write and say that I am greatful
that I met you. You have made a major impact
on my life not just being my gymnastic, dance,
and cheerleading coach but just being a friend.
You always listen to what I had to say when
things were'nt going great and helped me a lot
in the past year. I wanted to thank you for
getting me all the items that you got for my
apartment in college. You helped me a lot and
I appreciate it so much.
I also wanted to thank you for helping me be
the person I am today and also helping me reach
my goal: to cheer at the collegiate level!!!
As you know, I suffered a knee injury in cheerleading.
However, my knee should be better in 2 more
weeks. As soon as I am able to tumble, I will
be going straight back to New Jersey so you
can help me get my tumbling all back.
Thank you for everything and I really appreciate
everything that you have done.
Wilmington University Cheerleader and former
student/coach at Art of Gymnastics & Cheer
Thanks for putting on such a fantastic show.
You can really see all the hard work that went
into each number. You and your staff are to
be commended for choreographing such great
numbers and working so hard with our children.
The costumes were beautiful, and, again,
you can tell the hard work that went into putting
them together and keeping the costs
So many things about the show were great, but
I wanted to mention one little thing. When I
saw the Wonder Woman spin, it took me right
back to my childhood, watching Diana spin into
Wonder Woman every Friday night. They truely
did the spin exactly the way she did it!!!!
VERY excited about next year's dance classes,
and Rachel is really excited about learning
the new upcoming Aerial Arts!
...along with freshman Devin
Velli add a level of tumbling to the
team that Wilmington University has not seen
before. The Wilmington University Cheer team
has a very exciting season ahead of them! The
talent and experience possessed by this team
will definitely lead them in the right direction
for the coming years...
Wilmington University Cheerleading Head Coach
Dear Mr. Jeff and Art of
Gymnastics and Cheer Staff,
I want to tell you how much
my daughter enjoys the gym and how much
self-confidence she has gained by attending
classes there. My daughter started attending
classes at the Art of Gymnastics and Cheer in
the Spring of 2008. She was very shy and didn't
want to leave my side. Miss Amanda E. was
Daniela's first teacher. She took her under her
wing and showed her how to do her first
cartwheel. I can't tell you how excited she was
to show me. After that she looked forward to and
couldn't wait for her next classes. I am proud
to say that she was invited to the pre team
competition team and can now do her back hand
Each teacher that Daniela
has encountered over the past year has been
wonderful. They have all played a part in
building her self-confidence and also reassuring
her that she has the ability to reach her goals.
Thank you Mr. Jeff for all your kindness and
support and for seeing something special in my
daughter. Thank you to all of the Art of
Gymnastics and Cheer Staff you guys all great.
and Art of Gymnastics and Cheer Staff,
daughter, Jenna, walked into your studio only knowing how
to do a cartwheel. ONE year later she has
accomplished herself all the way up to a full
twist! I am simply amazed and thrilled at all she
has learned from you and your staff. Your students
are not only talented they are kind hearted and
generous. Keep up the great work. We are happy and
proud to be apart of the AOGAC!

HN HAND REALTORS
of Gymnastics & Cheer,
My Husband and
I would like to thank you and your staff for the
wonderful program you have at your gym. Our Son
Joseph came to the gym because he was involved in
the fantasy cheerleading team. Joseph soon
realized he was more interested in the gymnastics
part of cheer. He started out with no tumbling
experience and started off slowly. We then decided
try one night a week with you coaching him in
gymnastics, He advanced quickly. He is now able to
do tucks, Arabians, layouts and a full twist! He
was very proud as were we, when he was asked to be
on the Pre-Team. Since then he works hard on
perfecting his tricks as well as learning new
ones. My husband and I are very impressed with the
progress that Joseph has made. You and you Staff
have given Joseph a higher self- esteem by always
encouraged him to strive for the best that he can
do and recognizing when he does . Your gym offers
so many great classes and different levels for
each child to find their place. From there
they work on advancing without pressure but with
encouragement, that you and your wonderful Staff
give them to be the best they can be. We just
wanted to thank you all for teaching & encouraging
him with his gymnastics.
P.S.- we can’t wait for our granddaughter Adrianna
to start the Mommy and me classes this year.
Hi Mr. Jeff and Staff,
I would like to start by saying my friends and
family were once again impressed by a wonderful
recital, and how much my daughter Savannah has
grown with her skills and her confidence on the
stage. We are so pleased with how much she is
learning. Savannah loves the gym, here team mates
and the coaches. We want to thank everyone...
A special thanks to Mr. Jeff for being so
understanding of our circumstances after my
accident. And not last but not least let’s not
forget the job your staff did with coaching my
nephew Devin. His tumbling skills are great and
he starts Wilmington University with a
Cheerleading Scholarship in 3 weeks

It looks like your school did amazing in Atlantic
City @ Nationals!- great newspaper article!
I am scheduled to adjudicate on September 13th
in NJ, but I hope I will be back in time to
see your student's performance at Madison Square
Garden!! ... Tell the kids I loved
the article and hope they know they are at one
of the best schools!
Mr. Charles Kelley (Acrobatic Extraordinaire,
Dance Educators Of America Staff)
Dear Jeff & Staff,
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for
the amazing year my daughters, Rachel and Samantha
Wright, had at your studio and on your competition
team this year. You have enhanced their
acrobatics, dance, contortion and hand-balancing
skills beyond my expectations. I couldn’t be
happier with every aspect of your services.
Our economy is bleak to say the least, and you
understand that. Your prices are beyond
reasonable, and I love the fact that there are
never any surprise extra fees. You kept the team’s
travel expenses light by choosing nearby
competitions – not just because you are a savvy
businessman, but because you truly care about your
students and their families. My daughters felt and
looked like princesses in your custom-made
costumes, and yet we didn’t have to pay “royal
I couldn’t agree more with the United States
Tournament of Dance judges who gave you the award
for “Diversity in Choreography.” I don’t know how
you do it, but somehow you manage to give each
child his or her own little piece of the spotlight
in the phenomenal numbers you create. Your methods
are successful, and the proof is in the way the
kids and parents truly do support one another as a
My daughters ADORE YOU, your staff, and
their fellow teammates and students, and we can’t
wait for another wonderful year on you team!
Elementary School Teacher
Art of Gymnastics & Cheer Staff,
I gotta tell tell you I really loved the hand balancing
number, along with the rest of the recital
"Tumbling & Dancing Through the 50's & 60's"! There were a lot of different teachers this year
which I thought made a big difference in the
routines for the recital. It was a fabulous show
once again. My daughters had a great time
performing in it and can not wait for the dvd to
get here so they can begin showing everyone the
Dear Jeff & Staff at Art of
Gymnastics & Cheer,
Although my sister was not able to stay for your
whole show "Tumbling & Dancing Through the 50's &
60's", my daughter, Reagan and I loved it.
The tumbling was impressive as expected.
Congratulations! You've made your way back
to the top. Best wishes to all of the
talented athletes you train. Thank You for

Art of Gymnastics & Cheer,
I would like to comment on Saturday's performance at Cheer Tech National
Championships, not only for the kids but for the coaches. I wish I had a tape
recorder in the audience so that you could have heard what everyone was saying.
The comments were not only coming from the spectators but other coaches as
well. They were amazed at how our kids kept going when the music went out
during the one performance. They continued nailing everything they did and
most of all....people had commented on how well our students knew the routine
and that they knew the counts without counting. To me that is the biggest
I am honored to be a part of such a talented program. As I said, our kids were
not the only ones who received those comments, they also commented on our
coaches. I am proud of all of you!!!! I must also add that I think what
happened today was a blessing in a weird kind of way... this was a local
competition and all eyes were on us. To me, our team's reaction to the music going out showed true professionalism! All of our students were unbelievable at
Cheer Tech and now I am sure all the locals can agree that our academy is a very
strong, talented, professional facility with amazing kids!
Dear Dance Teams,
We arrived home last night from the Cheer Tech National
Cheerleading & Dance Championships. Our cheer team did very well (we won
2nd place!). However, on the way home all of the girls in my van could do
was to talk about your two teams! My niece is a huge fan of the musical
"Wicked!" and she was mesmerized how you were able to take the song "Defying
Gravity" and make it into a dance/acro number! And that Pirate number was
like something we had never seen. My son usually does not go with us to
cheer events, but this weekend we made a family trip out of it. He waited
all day on Sunday for that Pirate number to come back on! What a way to
end the day! Your parents should be so proud. You have an amazing
program with super talented kids! Great job. Hope to see you at
another cheer event soon
Dear Art of Gymnastics & Cheer,
I am satisfied with the progress that Grace has been making, it is nice to see
her excel in tumbling. After the Complete Cheer & Dance Championships I
asked her if she liked competing and if it was fun. She said, “I want to do it
forever.” She is such a personality I can’t stand it. Until the day she says
it is no longer fun she will continue to do what she loves at your studio. My
hat is off to the staff, Jeff and Diane for making this all possible.
With a most sincere heart,
Dear Art of
Gymnastics & Cheer Staff,
My daughter had her birthday party there this year! I
will never have another house party!!!!
The staff at Art of Gymnastics and Cheer
catered to my needs and made the party a
hit with myself and mainly with the
children. Fun was had by all! I will
recommend this to all my friends. You have a top notch facility and my
daughter and friends LOVED her birthday
Oakcrest High School Faculty
Dear Art of Gymnastics & Cheer,
I would like to
say, I have been to many cheer
competitions and Complete Cheer & Dance
was by far my favorite. As a mother of a
first time Competition Team Member, I was
able to see my
son and the rest of the team shine
brighter than any star in the sky. Not to
mention I got to see my son do some really
amazing tumbling passes and dances that
he has only been doing for 1 year
now. These kids work so hard to remember
the routines and some have a lot to
remember, to build endurance and still
keep their grades up for school. These
kids and their coaches deserve the
recognition they received Saturday.
Not to go on about
my son but this competition helped Devin
get over his fear. Not many of you know
this but he was extremely nervous. But at
the end he learned how to change fast
for all the routines and it was a bonus
that the collegiate coaches watched
everyone and stayed around longer to check
Devin out. Because they are interested in
him and he is interested in cheering at
the collegiate level. As far as I'm
concerned, these kids and coaches show be
in every and all cheer and DANCE
competitions they can..
I also want to
personally thank Betty and Gene for a
terrific job on the props and everyone
that helped. I also want to thank the
entire staff for being great to the kids.
A special THANK YOU to the staff for
helping Devin bring out his natural
tumbling talent and coaching him. Not only
have you taught him to tumble, but you
taught him not to doubt his abilities. (
you've done that for all the kids )
I can't wait to
Oh Devin's Aunt and
Uncle were there this Saturday and
completely amazed with the Competition
Team and the routines..

Diane & Jeff,
Just wanted to send you a note to tell you how
wonderful the girls are doing in Virginia
Beach. Katrina is going to Virginia Beach
Performing Arts Academy where thanks to the
training she received at Art of Gymnastics &
Cheer, she is in the advanced ballet classes
and is also doing world dance which includes
African dance and Flamenco. She also
made her schools varsity gymnastics team and
is competing beam, vault and floor. Katrina
just won 3rd place on floor
and 2nd on vault at her last
meet. Emilie now concentrating on her
gymnastics full time, is competing at level
7. Emilie was able to go into the new
gym with enough skills, thanks to the
coaching she received at your training
academy, to keep up with the girls already
in training. We are just starting our
competition season so I will keep you posted
on her progress. Good luck with your season
we all miss you guys so so much. Thank you
for all that you did for the girls, hope to
see you soon.
Gymnastics & Cheer Staff,
I Just wanted to thank you for all your effort you have
put into teaching Carly at your gym. She enjoys
every minute she is there. If were up to her,
she would be there 5 days a week, as if three
weren't enough :o)
We both have learned so much from being with your
facility. You teach with great technique and
reassurance. With all you do at your gym and the
words you speak to each and everyone of those
kids, you have helped to make Carly who she
is...a wonderful, soft hearted, kind, well
spoken, proud, confident little girl. I must say
as a mother I feel so secure knowing that Carly
will be in a safe and clean gym three days a
week and be influenced by a great, kind hearted
staff. I look forward to all the great times to
come. Once again...Thank you all for helping
Carly be who she is...
Dear Art of Gymnastics and Cheer,
The staff and residents would like you to know what a
great show you put on for us. We really
appreciate your thoughtfulness and talent.
See you again soon!
Chapin House Assisted Living Center, NJ
Staff at Art of Gymnastics & Cheer,
I would just like to say thank you for the
excellent Halloween party you had this season.
My husband and I were pleasantly surprised to see
such a huge turn out and to actually have a
"haunted hayride" outside was amazing also!
The kids had a blast and your annual "parade of
costumes" was a lot of fun too! We can't
wait for next season's party! My daughter
loves her dance class and gymnastics class too.
We have been concerned with her weight the past
two years and we can already see her more
energetic! She is faster and stronger
now too. Thanks so much for promoting
healthy, safe, and fun activities for her. Your academy is great!
Dear Art of Gymnastics & Cheer,
Bianca and Angela have just completed recital #3.
As with recitals 1 and 2 it was a wonderful show
full of wonderful and happy students. As I pack
away their costumes I can't help but think about
the dedicated staff that worked so hard to make
these costumes came to life on recital night.
The students are anxious to do their best.
They have been shown how important it is to enjoy
what they're doing and to always strive to do
things their best.
One of the most impressive aspects of Art of
Gymnastics and Cheer is the strong camaraderie
among the students. They are always there to cheer
on each other. The older students are always ready
to longingly help the younger students.
The instructors are loving, yet firm in their
teaching. They know what each child is capable of
and strive to see that they are given their
To Jeff, Diane, and all of the staff I say
thank you. I want only the best for the girls I
know we are right on target with your studio.
Janet, Bianca, and Angela
Dear Art of Gymnastics & Cheer,
I just came home from seeing "Tumbling & Dancing in Disneyland". I must
say I was absolutely astonished to see how amazing your studio and students are!
I went to my neighbor's recital at another school in the beginning of the month.
Honestly, I dreaded the thought of going to another recital (this time for my
goddaughter). We all thought "...we'll just leave after her number is
finished..." After that opening number, you could not have pulled me from my
chair! My husband was a collegiate gymnast and could not believe all of
those twists your children did all night long! I was a NCA cheerleader for
12 yrs and when I saw that Senior Co-Ed Cheer Team, I knew you had top quality
teachers in ALL facets of dance, gym and cheer! That 2 & 1/2 high pyramid
That contortion number was outstanding as well! What flexibility your
students have! So graceful and elegant. I am so happy our
goddaughter is there and learning from the best teachers around!
Dear Art of Gymnastics and
We are wrapping up our first season in your gym. We wanted to take this time to
thank you for welcoming the Fantasy All-Star Competition Cheerleaders to use
your facility. Our teams have excelled with your tumbling instruction and it is
so nice to have access to a gym whenever we need it.
We have felt so comfortable since we started there and have made many friends
with your students and staff. Our teams also had a great time participating in
your recital and we enjoyed watching all of your talented students. We are
looking forward to many more seasons with you and we hope the four walls can
hold all of our teams and yours because we keep on growing. But that's what
happens when you have a good thing going.
Cheers, From The Fantasy All-Star Coaching Staff
Dear Art of Gymnastics & Cheer,
I have to tell you one more time what a great job you
did with our very talented kids for the
competition this weekend. Great, great
Nancy (Sara & Rebecca's grand mom)
Dear Art of Gymnastics & Cheer Staff,
I would like to commend you on a wonderful
recital. We had 18 family members in attendance
and they all LOVED every moment of it. I can't
tell you how pleased I was with EVERYTHING.
I'd also like you to know how wonderful I think
the staff is. Miss Amanda is a VERY special
person and we all appreciate her patience. Every
teacher that I have met, although they have not
had direct contact with us, is always smiling
and very friendly. I am grateful to be able to
have enrolled Gabby in such an awesome school.
Finally, the surprise we received! Your
invitation for Gabby to be on the competition
pre-team blew all of us away. I am honored to
have such a school want to teach my daughter how
to be a STAR!!!! I look forward to seeing you
all when we start her on the pre-team and at
many more exciting recitals and hopefully
competitions. Please keep me informed of
anything I can do to help.
Heather & Chance Grey & Family
Dear staff and
students at the Art of Gymnastics and Cheer,
As our three daughters wrap up their first
complete year with your studio, we cannot tell
you how grateful we are for all they have
accomplished. My oldest daughter, Giana, has
excelled since she walked through your doors.
Her self esteem has never been this high-
ever. We really regret leaving your old
studio 7 years ago. Our middle daughter,
Ciara, has also achieved so much including new
friends, confidence and style. She loves it!
And of course, our baby girl, Carina. Wow,
does she love coming to your studio! What
other 4 year old can spend 3 evenings a week
at a studio and ask for more? She will
flourish with the guidance and dedication of
your staff. We look forward to many more
years at your studio--we can't wait to see
what they accomplish next!
Thank you for your
studio's professionalism, schedule
flexibility, dedication and allowing the kids
to have fun while they learn.
Denise and Jeff
Dear friends at Art of Gymnastic and Cheer,
I have seen other professional training for young people and have
never seen as much fun or heard as much laughter
as I have at Art of Gymnastics and Cheer. It is
not easy to get so many kids to work their hearts
out for you and everyone of those kids work hard
for you because they feel that you care about
them, you celebrate their successes, and work with
them to master that new trick or routine. I am
very impressed with your expert coaching and
sensitive handling of the young athletes at your
facility. The excitement and enthusiasm that you
exude in every class is contagious. The kids are
excited because they can see their own progress.
The parents can see the progress too. You garner
trust from the kids and the parents and that
speaks to your concern for safety and
professionalism. I am glad my daughter has a
chance to be a part of it all.
Gymnastics & Dance Instructors,
staff at ACDA would like to congratulate your
Dance Ensemble, "The 4 Elements", on their
outstanding performance at our National
Championships this past month. The routine they
performed was truly outstanding; we know that a
lot of hard work, determination and discipline
went into their routine.
are proud to award your team from The Art of
Gymnastics & Cheer, with a check in the amount of
$500.00 for having the highest score in the dance
ensemble division and on being named our 2006
Dance Ensemble Grand National Champion!
Staff of ACDA
We just wanted to say thank you so much for a great experience and a wonderful day at competition today. Kalie really had a blast doing the different routines in the competition. She is looking forward to the next competition a great deal. I am also looking forward to it. You and your entire crew do a fabulous job every day with these students. You make it fun and exciting as well as teaching them new things each time they are there.
Thank you again for all that you do for my daughters. They absolutely love it.
Barbara, Kalie and Stephanie Roach
Staff and friends at Art of Gymnastics & Cheer,
We would like to thank you for your kindness
and your generous donation to "A Gift From Gia".
Thanks to the compassion of people such as your

Our biggest thank you is for remembering us,
Vincent, Beth, Mia and the Gia Chiarella foundation
Art of Gymnastics & Cheer Staff,
Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful
party for Bethany's 6th birthday. We never had
so many children in attendance at a party. Yet,
it was one of the most organized and active
events we have ever had. The kids were kept
busy and entertained, with each one receiving
individualized attention. More than once the
children were heard to exclaim "This is fun!" They all had smiles on their faces. Parents
also complimented the overall quality of the
party and how involved their children were.
Needless to say, a good time was had by all!
So thank you once again for all of your time
and effort in providing a wonderful celebration
for Bethany's birthday.
It was definitely enjoyed

I am just writing to let you know how much the gymnastics facility means to Morgan. She has done very well there and has gained much confidence, maturity and stage presence being enrolled in your gymnastics, cheer and dance programs. She has utilized her talents by being selected in numerous events. She has won the talent portion in area pageants, she was selected as a tumbling munchkin in the Wizard of Oz, she was selected as a "flipper" for her local cheer team. She will represent your gymnastics facility in two weeks at the Gia Chiarella Cheerleading Tournament. She could not be more proud to have your uniform on! She recently won the Regional Title of "Junior Miss Ticket To Broadway". We are all so proud of her! Thanks for all you have done for my daughter. By the way, the new equipment is awesome!

Your staff displays leadership while inviting children of all levels to love the world of dance. Lena may never be a prima ballerina, but your teachers make her feel as though she already is. She may or may not ever win a first place trophy, but feels as though she already has the tons of trophies on display at the gym.
We'd like to say thank you Art of Gymnastics and Cheer for caring about even the tiniest dancers in their very first role as students. We especially appreciate the confidence you've given to Lena. It is no wonder that we cannot tear her away from your school even after she completes her classes each week. "Can't I stay and watch the big girls?" is music to our ears. We're so happy Lena has found something that she truly loves. Thanks to your staff and students, Lena doesn't ever think of herself as a little girl with a birth defect. Instead she often refers to herself as a dancer, a gymnast, or a cheerleader. For that, we could never thank you enough.
Dear Art of Gymnastics & Cheer Staff,
Both of my children have attended (over the years), Art of Gymnastics and Cheer. My son Nick's experience was exceptional in the fact that school was never his thing. He had no self-confidence because he didn't succeed in school. However, he grew as a person as well as a gymnast under the expert direction and care of the staff at Art of Gymnastics and Cheer. I believe his experiences and lessons he learned at the gym allowed him to excel at other aspects of his life. As he competed throughout the years and continually dominated his category of competition, his self-esteem and his drive to achieve lifted him to amazing planes in the gymnastics world as well as in his academic career. Along with back tucks and full twists he learned time-management and lessons in life.
My daughter's experience has been just as rewarding, but on a different level. She already excels at her academics, but after a hiatus from dance due to injury, she knew it would be hard to get back to the point she was before. The staff at Art of Gymnastics and Cheer worked with her and has since brought her back to, if not beyond, her expectations in the field of dance. She feels more fulfilled and is truly happier to now have dance back in her life, and I truly feel that this transition might not have as successful if it did not take place at Art Of Gymnastics And Cheer.
As Mia is preparing to travel to Florida to compete with the Wildwood Catholic varsity cheerleaders, I can't help but think back to the countless other competitions we've experienced. I'd just like to say that aside from turning her into one of the most outstanding tumblers in our area, you more importantly gave her the ability to get on that stage and perform with absolute confidence. She also excels in good teammanship and sportsmanship, which is something she sadly may never have learned had it not been for the time spent in your gym, under the direction of your fabulous staff. This past week she came home astounded by your brand new competitive cheerleading spring floor!
Mia is looking forward to this competition, as she always has, with no apprehension whatsoever, just the sheer excitement of getting back up on that stage, and doing what she does best. I am proud to say that you've played a huge part in turning her into the mature young woman that she is today, and for that, I will always be immensely grateful. It is not just my Mia, but so many of the students who have come through your doors are truly "shining stars". It must be a wonderful feeling to impact so many young lives! We love you...
Vincent, Beth, Mia, and always, Gia
Dear Diane & Staff,
Just a note to let you know what a wonderful program I think you have. My daughter absolutely loves coming to the gym. She is so positive and I can see that her self-esteem has improved drastically. I have found your staff/coaches extremely competent and wonderful with the kids. Keep up the great work!
I am writing just to say how much I enjoyed your facility. I loved attending classes at your wonderful gymnastics, cheer and dance school. The coaches are amazing! They taught me self-esteem, patience, agility, coordination, strength, social skills and the ability to balance academics and extra curricular activities. What I learned over the years at your facility has played a huge part in what I do today. Thank you for all that you have done for me! Please continue the great work you do with all of your students! I wish you and Art of Gymnastics & Cheer continued success in the future.

I am writing to say how much I enjoy your facility. Not only have my two daughters become accomplished gymnasts, they have also learned valuable life skills. As the coach of the Wildwood Catholic cheerleaders, I have encouraged the team to develop their tumbling skills at your gym. Your instructors are friendly, patient & encouraging to all students at all levels of ability. Keep up the great work!

Dear Teachers, Coaches, and Diane,
I am writing to thank you for such a wonderful experience at the Art of Gymnastics and Cheer's facility. Years have come and gone since attending but the effects of what I was taught by such credible and caring individuals has been long lasting. I am currently highly involved with running and swimming, and I have found many of the skills that I learned during my time there have contributed to my current success (i.e. flexibility and stamina, but most importantly perseverance and determination). I thank your staff and know that if your students walk away with half of what I gained from my experience, than as mentors, you have clearly done your job.

Art of Gymnastics and Cheer has been a keystone in my life. I have been dancing since the age of 2, but due to an injury at the age of 11, I could not dance for 5 years. I am now 16 years of age and back in dance for the first time, in a long time. The staff at Art of Gymnastics and Cheer has become like a family to me as they worked with me, diligently, to get me "back in the groove." I've never been happier, now that I have dance back in my life, I feel complete and it brought a whole new facet of change to my "ever-so-busy" life. I've learned time management and how to juggle all my school, church, community and dance things together. I learn not only skills in dance, but also skills in life. I am also a competitor in pageantry and they have been so gracious as to help sponsor me in the past and even help me with talent routines. Everyone there is truly a blessing in my life, and I will always have with me the things I experience at Art of Gymnastics and Cheer.
With much love and gratitude,

Dear Art of Gymnastics and Cheer,
Four years ago, our lives stopped when without warning, our first daughter was born with a birth defect called Aural Atresia & Microtia. Luckily, we learned that it was mostly cosmetic but still worried about how others would perceive her. The doctors could only tell us that she could have her missing ear reconstructed when she was 6 years old. Until then, they said, "do all you can to increase her self-esteem; she will be picked on because kids are mean." We had no idea what to do to build confidence in such a young child. As parents, we would have done anything to protect our little girl from the stares and whispers. It turns out, we didn't have to do anything except to enroll her in Art of Gymnastics and Cheer.
Lena has been dancing at your facility for less than two years, yet makes herself at home there like she has known all of you much, much longer. She is a four year old who has learned through your constant praise and encouragement to carry herself as if she is twice her age. She beams with pride not only over her own accomplishments but over those of the entire school. Lena considers herself one of the gang at Art of Gymnastics and looks up to the other dancers as if they are her brothers and sisters. The girls and boys at Art of Gymnastics are not at all "mean" like the kids the doctor warned us about. They are supportive and accepting of one another. They are the most talented dancers, gymnasts, and cheerleaders I have seen in this area, yet they are always eager to learn more and are constantly practicing to become even better.
Art of Gymnastics & Cheer,
"Thank you" is a little phrase, but still, it's meant to show your kindness is appreciated more than you could know. We at the Loyalton think you put on a fantastic show for us. Thank you for volunteering your time to perform for our residents. The dancers put smiles on all of our resident's faces.
