Columbia Acro and Tumbling Team (C.A.T.T.)

Acrobatic Gymnastics (Acro) emphasizes the combined beauty of dance and acrobatics. Acro is fun for students because it is a partner sport requiring athletes of all ages, shapes, and sizes. The combination of dance, tumbling and partner skills make Acro very unique. This sport will enhance the student in many ways including: physical strength, flexibility, agility, balance, and grace, as well as the ability to work with others.

The Columbia Acro and Tumbling Team (CATT) participates in meets at the local, state and national level. Classes are held at the Hearnes Center.

Please call Heather Zepp, CATT Head Coach, at 573-619-0349 or e-mail to
