Saturday afternoon, flips, tumbles, cartwheels and other aerial stunts were commonplace at the Westfield ValenciaTown Center, as students from Waller’s Gym Jam Academy showed off their skills.

 

Kids of all ages and skill levels took part in the performances, demonstrating the strength and coordination required by the sport of gymnastics. The goal of the event was to get the community excited about the upcoming Olympics, and to familiarize them with the intricacies of gymnastics.  

 

While Waller’s offers programs for beginners, they also have two former Olympians on staff, including owner and Coach Chris Waller. Mohini Bhardwaj also coaches at Waller’s, and she earned her fame after winning the silver medal at the 2004 Olympics.

 

Waller and Bhardwaj also made time to sign autographs during the show

 

Certificates for one free month at Waller’s Gym Jam Academy are now available at the KHTS Community Resource station.
