About Bodies in Motion at Twin Oaks 

We are offering classes for Beginner I - with no minimum skill requirements, Beginner II - you will need to test out of the Beginner I skills, and Intermediate - you will need to test out of the Beginner II skills.  The Advanced and Pre-Team levels will be invite-only and have a minimum skill requirement. 
Please email if you would like your daughter to be evaluated for our Advanced or Pre - Team level.  The skill requirements are listed below if you have any questions please email 4bodiesinmotion@gmail.com 
Again, this is new for everyone, if your child signs up in Beginner I and after the first week or so it’s determined that she would be a better fit in Beginner II or vice versa, we will have that conversation and find the right fit for your daughter.  Nothing is set in stone and we will navigate this together.

When will my child compete?

As we begin this new youth competitive venture there are a few unknowns.  Being this is a brand new program to PL we are unsure we will have enough students to create a team or have a group of students that are ready to compete in such a short amount of time. 

The competition season typically begins in December - February.  At this time it is not 100% that we will have a competitive team for the 2021-22 season.  This is ok!  I would rather show up to our first competition and be prepared and competitive! I

If we feel we have a team that is ready for 21-22, then we are prepared to start competing this year. This will be communicated if this becomes an option.   There are many layers to getting ready for a competition team and I want to be as prepared as we can.
