Several young gymnasts at Albany Gymnastics Academy were flipping, jumping and doing splits in celebration of the National holiday.
Manager and head gymnastics instructor, Cathy Millnof, says gymnastics is helping these future stars build confidence and self-esteem.
Millnof adds, "We try to work with each child by working on their self-confidence, working on self-esteem and we try to cater to the individual needs as much as possible."
National Gymnastics Day was also celebrated in Tifton at Dream It Gymnastics, and kids got a chance to meet L-S-U All American gymnast, Nicki Arnstad.
