Clara Practices Gymnastics 3 – Clara on the Beam

Hello there!

I hope you enjoy another enstallment of Clara practicing gymnastics! If you would like to see the last two times that Clara practiced gymnastics, you can check out her floor practice here, and her bar practice here!

Without further ado, take it away, Clara! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hey everyone! I’m excited to get to show you my beam skills today!

DSCN2318

Remember, before doing gymnastics, be well-stretched and have a good mat or soft floor area.

Also make sure to tie your hair back! I also left off my glasses, since I don’t have contacts, and my vision isn’t too bad.

Let’s begin! Now when Gracie is at her gymnastics, she would probably do releve (Re-le-vay) walks across the beam, which means walking on your toes, but since I’m a doll with unmovable ankles, and I don’t want to bore you with simply walking across the beam, I’ll do step kicks across the beam instead!

So I kick and step,

kick and step.

Pivot turn!

Now let’s try something more interesting. How about a handstand?

DSCN2337

Lunge, lever,ย (Note, use your good leg consistently in skills like handstands and cartwheels, as I had forgotten to do ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

DSCN2339

And kick up! (Also, I highly recommend NOT closing your eyes during your gymnastics skills ๐Ÿ˜› )

Normally Gracie would land a handstand in a lunge, but since lunges are harder for us dolls, I just stuck the landing.

I’m going to try a split jump!

DSCN2347

Up, split, and…!

DSCN2349

Whooaa!

DSCN2350

Oof! Oops, I was supposed to stick that… Well, at least you know now why to have a mat!

DSCN2354

I’ll just do my good leg splits on the beam!

DSCN2357

Next I want to show you my side handstand dismount!

DSCN2359

Lever, kickup,

DSCN2362

DSCN2365

and dismount!ย For this skill I needed to keep my hands on the beam all the way till I reach the ground!

DSCN2367

And stick it!

DSCN2374

Now you may remember from other times that I’ve shown you my gymnastics, that I always have one skill that I want to show you, but that I need help with! Last time Carolineย spotted me, and this time…

DSCN2375

Julie came to help!

DSCN2378

I’m going to do a cartwheel on the beam!

DSCN2380

Lever,

DSCN2384

and cartwheel!

DSCN2389

Yippee! Thanks Julie!

DSCN2399

That’s it for today! I hope that you enjoyed! And a special thanks to Julie for spotting me today!

Bye!


Behind the Scenes!

(It’s Gracie again!)

DSCN2329

Ourย family cat walked into the setup a few times, and I snapped some pictures of him!

Here is the setup that I made for this post, consisting of a blanket, several old books, and some reflecting tools!

Also, a big thanks to my brother who helped hold up Clara for a lot of pictures!

 

This might be the last “Clara Practices Gymnastics! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ At least, that was my original plan, but maybe sheย could come back again on the vault…

Did you enjoy seeing Clara practice her beam skills? Would you like to see Clara on the vault? Do you/have you ever done gymnastics?

  1. This was fun to read! I like how Clara was like, “since dolls can’t bend,” That part was so funny! I think it would be fun to do a vault post, but you should do whatever you want!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I do gymnastics ๐Ÿ˜€ !
      Aw, thanks! His name is Clifford! ๐Ÿ™‚
      For the mats, I actually just stacked some colors of craft foam and lined them up like a tri-fold mat, and I made the beam with some wood pieces covered in duct tape. I think I just glued them together.
      Thanks for commenting!!

  3. This was so much fun, I really enjoyed it! And your photo booth was so neat, and your cat, so cute!!! I’d love to see some more of Clara’s gymnastics! No, I’ve never done gymnastics but I’ve always thought it would be cool! ๐Ÿ˜€
