Students at M&K Gymnastics showcased all they had learned in a Gymnastics Fever recital Tuesday, Aug. 3. Six classes were included, and boys and girls from 2-13 years old performed on uneven bars, balance beam, vault and floor.
This is the third year of M&K Gymnastics, taught by Megan Colglazier and Kendra Timm. The show featured talent at all levels.
The 10-13 class opened the evening with a routine to “Tik Tok.” Students included Sydney Goldenstein, Peyton Dittmer, Megan Humphreys, Regan VanOverbeke, Grace Dille and Tori Hatton. Each of the girls, dressed in fluorescent costumes to match their vibrant performance, completed stunts on multiple apparatuses.
Next on the lineup was an enthusiastic crew of 4-6-year-olds. The group demonstrated well-practiced moves, with assistance when needed from Colglazier and Timm. Students in the class were Brendan Nelson, Samantha Seger, Max Dirks, Keegan Colglazier, Abbie Dille, Ethan Schneller and Carter VanOverbeke.
“The Way I Are” was the next performance, by the 7-9-year-old class. A large class, with fun yellow and black costumes, the girls pleased the crowd with several unique stunts, working both as individuals and together.
The class was made up of Riley Thompson, Rylee Schneller, Haley VanOverbeke, Allie Thompson, Josie Brown, Ella Coffin, Ashlyn Churchwell, Taylor Trumper, Tanley Andersen and Taeryn Trumper.
A second 4-6 class presented “Let It Rock.” Kambree Bules, Erin Andersen, Clover Adler, Josie Schlachter, Cassidy Goddard and Alyssa Lock beamed with confidence as they eagerly showed parents what they learned in class.
The youngest gymnasts of the night made up the Mom and Tot class. Anessa Colglazier, Sophie Bencomo, Addie Oliver, Kelsie Hadeen, Mylee Dirks, Marren Dirks and Parker Steggs warmed up to the crowd and showed what fun they had on the different equipment.
Bringing the finale was a tumbling class made up of Sydney Goldenstein, Peyton Dittmer and Megan Humphreys. All returning gymnasts, the trio presented an exiting, high energy routine.
Gymnastics Fever marked the conclusion of this round of lessons, but Colglazier and Timm noted they look forward to resuming classes next summer.
