Zodiac Display Team
The Zodiac Display Team was formed in 1995 when the school we were training in asked us to perform in their school fete.
At the same time one of the gymnast's mum, had connections with Caterham Carnival and asked us to perform there. Each year our performance has a different theme and different costumes, with some of our 2002 display having their pictures in British Gymnastics publications.
In 1996 we took part in London Festival of Gymnastics for the first time, which was held at Crystal Palace, from there it moved to Wembley for the 1999 festival from there to Essex, and in 2004 it moved and remains at Brentwood Leisure Centre.
The Display Team grew in numbers and a seperate time and day was made for the Display Team to train. As the rest of the club grew other gymnasts wanted to take part in the display team, so in 2000 the Display team became a separate section of the Club, to which the recreational and squads could join.
Every October we hold open trials to find possible new members of the team. In order to be in the team you must be able to do certain skills, be confident at heights, be a good team player, have charisma and personality and be able to follow and learn dance sometimes which is complex and challenging.
