Twister Gymnastics - Featured Twister for November 2021: Jayla Booker. "Jayla is a 14 year old high school freshman and optional team gymnast who has been a part of the Twisters family since she was five years old. She has been a gymnast for the past nine years, and in July of this year, Jayla was diagnosed with epilepsy."
The start of a new school year is a particularly difficult time for many gymnasts, especially as they get older. They are required to do the intense gymnastics training they did all summer long while balancing the additional demands and challenges of new teachers and a full schedule of academic classes.

The recent shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland hit way too close to home for Twisters. Many of our students, including our Team girls, currently attend MSD and knew the victims. One of our Level 10 Team gymnasts, Alexandra Greenwald, lost one of her closest friends, Nicholas Dworet, in the shooting. Nick’s brother, Alex, was also shot and survived. Though facing heartbreak no high school senior should have to endure, Alexandra turned her grief into action and organized a meal train for Nick’s family to help support them in their darkest hour. In addition, she has dedicated [...]
