Colleen Long

I began acrobatic and dance training at age 6.  At age eleven I was able to train artistic gymnastics, which led eventually college gymnastics, until dance took over again. I coached everything from preschool to adults and recreational to level 10 gymnasts.  I love them all.  I enjoy developing young athletes and watching their progress. 

Favorite Activity:
Hiking and backpacking.

Favorite Skill or Event: 
Beam is my favorite event and my favorite skill is an illusion on beam connected to a front aerial.  I love the connection and the rotation of the body!

Favorite Food:
Dark Chocolate Almonds.

Advice for Students:
Enjoy the journey and what you learn along the way.  It what you learn that you will remember not the hardware that hangs on the wall or eventually fills a box or drawer.
