What Our Athletes Say
Joel Ronnie, Professional Dancer
I love Velocity and Coach Candace! I started private instruction at Velocity to learn acro for the first time in my life and have learned so much! I am a professional dancer, as the industry evolves acro has become an essential skill; I am feeling so confident in what I have learned and am looking forward to applying new skills to my work.
