Marcus Skyles started with Universal Performing Arts Center at the age of 7. He started his gymnastics training with Circus Arts classes, where he learned how to tumble properly. Marcus’s interested grew more and more at Universal for he wanted to be on the competition dance team!
He began his training in dance studying Jazz, T ap, Hip Hop, Ballet and Lyrical while all along still continuing his gymnastics training. Marcus’s USAG Gymnastics training lead his interest to go from dance to warning to do more in gymnastics… so he competed gymnastics as well!
Marcus started as an assistant coach at Universal and participated in many community events. We are thrilled to have Marcus at Universal Gymnastics Academy coaching our gymnasts!
Marcus’s goal is to work with the kids at Universal Gymnastics to motivate and encourage them to be their best at what they know they can do!
