With Fall definitely underway in full force, Team ATA has been working hard on learning acro partner skills. It's been very exciting to see what new partnerships and established ones are putting in their repertoire this season! Our Development Team athletes are learning and nailing down the basics early this season. It's gratifying to see that most of our athletes are very close to the requirements they need and will still have a lot of time to work on perfecting them early in the season!
Periodic testing helps to keep everyone on target as we move along and transition into the part of the year for learning routines. Now it's time to get their dance "on"! Choreographers are hard at work selecting music and creating exciting and engaging routines for pairs and groups. Athletes and coaches get a chance to enjoy the artistry of the sport come to life and to catch the vision for competing routines.
Entertaining guests in Halloween attire as Acro"Bats", two upper level trios had a chance to be one of several acts for a private party held at Great America on October 30th. The six athletes got to have a taste of what it feels like to work as an authentic circus-style performance group!
