GymCastic 316: CATS – European Championship Edition has the best commentary on Celine van Gerner’s historic routine in the Floor final at Europeans.
It includes a phone interview with Celine’s choreographer Daymon Jones. He’s an American dancer turned coach who worked on the CATS show for years.
I agree with their conclusions. It worked for this gymnast at this meet.
Still, FIG WTC should define what is allowed in terms of theatrics. (FIG Acro has already done so.)
What Celine did should be allowed, IMHO. But I’d disallow leotards with lights, for example. No props. Any kind of make-up or hair should be OK.
