This December all of our gymnasts will take part in the Kilkenny Gymnastics Academy Christmas showcase. From December 9th – 15th our gymnasts will display their best gymnastics skills for their parents/guardians. The gymnasts will have the opportunity to show you some routines they have been learning and skills they have been working on since September.
By now you will have received an email with the date and time. Ensure to read this carefully, unfortunately arriving on the wrong day or time will most likely result in your gymnast being unable to take part, as all floor routines are specific to each class group. Please be reminded that there is very limited seating so strictly only 2 guests per gymnast are allowed in order to seat everyone comfortably. There is limited space for buggies/prams and should you require wheelchair access please give us advanced notice.
A reminder of times and additional information can be seen below.
Frequently Asked Questions
What time should I arrive?
No earlier than the time listed. For shows on Saturday 7th, this will be an extremely busy day with only minutes between shows, if you arrive early you will not be allowed to enter the training centre and will have to wait until your designated show time. Arriving earlier also means that finding parking will be difficult.
What should my gymnast wear?
Hair should be tied up, no jewellery. Leotard is preferable but not essential for girls, fitted leggings and tshirts can be worn. Boys may wear shorts/tracksuit bottoms and a fitted tshirt. Tinsel in hair and Santa hats are very welcome 🙂
How long will the show last?
No longer than 1 hour for most classes.Advised in your email.
What should we bring?
As little as possible, gymnasts will not store any clothing in the lockers, clothing and shoes will be given to parents/guardians as everyone will exit the building through the roller door at the far end of the training centre. Above all bring lots of enthusiasm and support for the gymnasts!
I will have my baby/small child with me, is that ok?
Yes, as long as children will sit on your knee and your gymnast is still only using up their allowance of 2 seats and not taking a seat from another family that is fine. Children must be kept with you at all times. We do not have space for prams and buggies unfortunately so must be left at the door.
