Hello, I’m Monroe! I’m an aerialist and a performer. I have been homeschooled my whole life! During my childhood I enjoyed sports and just generally moving any chance I had. I was a tree scaler, mad ripsticker, and a self proclaimed music video backup dancer. As I’ve gotten older, I have been trying to find new and interesting ways to get stronger. Gymfit has been a great catalyst for that. It’s so much fun that most of the time I don’t even realize that I’m working out! In the 4 years I’ve been at GymFit, I have developed several new skills such as trapeze, staff, ribbon, duo silks, standing acro, tumbling, contortion, acro yoga, and more. Additionally, I have been able to spend a lot of time with the children of our community through GymFit’s summer camp, birthday parties, and events. I love working with kids and I’m so excited to share what I’ve learned with them!
Greetings! My name is Monet! I am currently training aerial arts, acro yoga, ribbons, and dance. I have had the privilege of being able to showcase my newly honed skills at various events including Live After Five, Dreamnight at the Zoo, and Bayou Cirque’s Dumbo Premiere Circus Performance. I enjoy all the time, effort, and sweat that goes into preparing for these events. I may even enjoy the preparation more than the actual performance. It's the perfect way to workout and have fun. Some of my happiest moments have been when I have learned a new trick and I want to share that feeling with everyone!
David has been active in theater for many years. Most recently he had a principal role in Newsies at Theatre Baton Rouge, and has performed in nine CYT musicals, most notably as LeFou in Beauty and the Beast. David is interested in parkour, free running, acrobatics and barbershop quartets. He has also performed in several other local productions, most notably Justin Rayna's staged reading of Legend City, A New Musical, and Intensify! Currently, in addition to instructing our trampoline and tricking class, David is one of our camp staff and a coach for GymFit's Homeschool PE program. He also occasionally performs with Bayou Cirque. David would like his future to continue to include some kind of musical theater or acrobatic performance opportunities.
