Emily Z. started coaching at Gold Star in the fall of 2017, and currently competes on our optional level Xcel team. She joined our teen class in 2016, after having competed as an acrobatic gymnast for seven years at a neighboring gym. Acrobatics is a combination of tumbling, dance and stunting, and Emily rose to Level 10, just one step below the Olympic team. During her acrobatic career, she won Gold at National Competitions four times. From the moment Emily joined our staff, she proved herself to be a dynamic and attentive coach, keeping her students engaged with her enthusiastic nature. Emily is CPR and First Aid Certified. We feel very lucky to have Emily and her breadth of knowledge join our coaching staff.
