Gem Starz is a member club of USA Gymnastics, the national governing body of youth gymnastics in the United States. Most of our competitive gymnasts are invited to team after careful observation during recreational class time or prior experience. Students compete within the state of Vermont as well as regionally and nationally, and train between 6 and 14 hours per week.
Gem Starz also offers a great Xcel team program for girls who are looking for an alternative to the level program. This is a great program for those who would like the opportunity to compete but may want to participate in other activities outside of the gym. We offer Xcel levels bronze, silver, gold and platinum levels.
We are really eager to get a boys gymnastics team started, please inquire at front desk or email us for information
Competitive Dance/All Star Dance Team –
Gem Starz will also offer a competitive dance company for ages 5-18. Competitive dance gives each student an added performance and technical opportunity to advance their skills and compete against other students with the same drive and interests. We will have 3-4 competitions per year within New England and possibly regional and national level competitions. In order to participate on dance company students will have to be enrolled in ballet and the genre in which they are competing in.
All Star Dance Team is slightly different than competitive dance and will be more for the hip hop driven student who wants to compete. It is a slightly more laid back program but will still compete at 2 competitions per year and will be our “show team” which will have the opportunity to perform locally at different events and functions.
Miss Kyla is excited to introduce this new level to the dance program. Her approach to the competitive level is to instill a level of competition but more importantly creating well rounded disciplined individuals who learn how to manage time, commitment and build strong relationships with their peers.
Gem Starz is a member club of US All Star Federation Cheer and we are introducing competitive cheer to Southern Vermont! Carrie Jewell former competitive coach for 12 years is introducing an ALL STAR cheer team for ages 3-18. This will be a brand new program to our gym and we are excited with the response we have gotten. All athletes will train in dance, tumbling, stunting and pyramids. These skills will be combined to form competitive routines to be performed and competed at a local and regional level. All levels are welcome to inquire.
*All of our teams are on an invite/audition basis only, please inquire with Gem Starz about your child’s eligibility.
