Do you do any sports or hobbies? I just started gymnastics and I quit dance when I moved out to Colorado this summer.

Why did you quit dance? I have been doing dance since I was three.  In Missouri I loved dance and I had a good coach and team, but ever since I’ve moved out to Colorado dance hasn’t been the same.

What’s your favorite part of gymnastics? Probably floor because you can do and learn a bunch of new tricks. You can do the same with like beam and bars but it’s just not the same as floor.

What’s the coolest trick you’ve learned in gymnastics? I think the coolest trick I have learned so far is probably the back-handspring.  

Why did you choose gymnastics or dance especially since you been doing dance since you were three? Well when I moved out to Colorado in July and I only had dance one night a week and I wanted to do more, but I couldn’t. I also have always been interested in gymnastics so I thought why not try it now.
