"Self-Esteem Through Movement"
The gymnasts at Stroup’s Gymnastics were privileged to watch a few Olympic gymnasts practice at their gym recently. The visitors were there to prepare for the show at the Jamestown Savings Bank Ice Arena. Artistic director, Paul Ziert, spoke to Stroup’s Gymnasts and their parents. He gave them some insights into what was being done. Then they were treated to a picture together.
