Stacey Smith

Gymnastics Coach/ Cheerleading Coach


"Born and raised in southern Ohio, I started gymnastics at the age of two at the Gymnastics Training Center of Ohio. Around the age of 15, I turned more of my focus on competitive cheerleading, and began competing statewide. I also have a compeitive dance background in jazz and hip hop. I love being able to incorporate gymnastics, dance, and high energy into a routine. I believe all things are possible with a positive mind and I want the children to learn how powerful they can be when their mind and body harmoniously work together."
