Cambridge Community Gymnastics

Last Sunday, March 3rd, the MIT Cheer Squad had the pleasure of participating in a 3-hour Gymnastics Workshop led by Abbie Green, Head Instructor & Executive Director of Cambridge Community Gymnastics (CCG), and two of her fellow staff members.

Abbie and her staff worked with our squad in learning basic warmups, exercises, and drills that focus on improving the tumbling in our 2013 NCA Nationals routine. As our squad contains members with all different backgrounds, the level of professionalism and experience Abbie and her staff have was very helpful in enabling our team to improve its technique in such a small amount of time.

The MIT Cheerleading Squad would like to send a special thank you to Abbie and Cambridge Community Gymnastics for volunteering to hold this workshop in support of our organization’s endeavors to compete at Nationals for the first time ever. If you or a friend is interested in learning more about CCG and its programs, you can contact them by email here or visit their website at:  https://sites.google.com/site/cambridgecommunitygymnastics/

“The Science Cheerleaders are professional cheerleaders pursuing science careers who playfully challenge stereotypes, turn everyone onto science by encouraging participation in citizen science activities, and inspire young women (including 3-4 million U.S. cheerleaders) to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and math. We do this by recasting the image of scientists and engineers while giving people the opportunity to explore their personal interests as a gateway to science. We communicate in ways that inspire people using our very real, very personal stories. We do this at schools, festivals, malls, on tv, online, at cheer events, games, bars…wherever the people are! The point: science is accessible to ALL!”
