Show Team

DeVeau's School of Gymnastics

<< Teams

The SHOW Team is a unified group of athletes with special needs and typical partners. We participate in USA Gymnastics sanctioned events under the Gymnastics for All discipline. Our routines include skills and choreography from all gymnastics disciplines – tumbling, rhythmic, partner work, and dance.

Athletes with special needs attend only one hour of practice. All team members are trained in the Perfect 10 Posture system which is designed to create stronger, more balanced bodies and stimulate brain function through movement. Each team member is challenged to his or her personal potential, whether they are special needs or typical.
