meet miss Monique
Monique started her long journey through dance, gymnastics, and competitive cheerleading at the age of 6. She started out dancing jazz and hip-hop. After a few years of dancing, she found her love for gymnastics, where she competed with Rebound Gymnastics for four years.
Her step-mother was a coach for the Colonia Patriots Pop-Warner Cheerleading Team, and also created the competitive cheerleading team, NJ Heat All-Stars. Seeing that cheerleading offered a mix of dance, gymnastics, and new challenges, Monique found her passion in cheerleading. She competed at Jersey Devils All-Star Competitive Cheerleading for six years working her way to the highest level team. During her cheerleading career, she competed at worlds as the point flyer where her team received 7th place in the world. She also received the award for “Coaches Choice” and “Cheerleader of the Year”. It came time to end her career in cheerleading due to college, but she knew in her heart she could not fully leave something she was passionate about for so many years.
Monique now shares her passion as an instructor for tumbling & gymnastics, and also choreographs competitive acrobatic dances.
