If you want a gym that cares more about money then the girls then go to IE. I took some concerns to Karlette and she kicked my child off the team. She has her favorites and if you are not one your child is out of luck. They refuse to spot your child during tumbling and expect them to learn the skills on their own. We were there 1 1/2 years and are very disappointed that our concerns where not taken seriously. Some of the coaches are good but others are just there to collect a pay check...view more. It is a shame really. It is in a great location and a wonderful facility but if you bring a true concern to Karlette she is just done with your family and child. They are all about numbers and are willing to allow your child to be a necessary causality in the pursuit to get bigger and make more money.view less
Indiana Elite All Star Cheer & Dance
Great All Star gym with top notch staff. We've been a part of this great family for 5 years and couldn't imagine going anywhere else. It's a large gym, but don't let the size scare you. Coaches, owners and staff all care about the safety and progression of the girls. I really appreciate that Bethe and Karlette keep our competition schedule fairly local, while putting in enough travel to keep the season fun. Uniforms, teams, and choreography are all age appropriate.
Incredible gym! We have been lucky to have spent 11 years and had 3 girls grow with Indiana Elite. From 1 floor and 25 girls to 5 floors and over 450 team kids, the success of the program speaks for itself. So thankful for everyone who has been a part of such an unforgettable experience for me and my girls! 5 stars is the least I could give!
My children were at Indiana Elite for 7 years, and I was a 4 yr board member up thru late 2011. I paid IE about $60,000 and donated about 4,000 hours of my personal time to help them over those 7 years.... nothing was expected or received in return. In their effort to go hard core in 2011, they treated my older daughter terribly, and when she quit, they kicked out my 10 year fully knowing she would be heartbroken and damaged from the experience. My little one went thru this because...view more I 'knew too much'.... so she became 'expendable'. Bethe & Karlette are too wrapped up in becoming a powerhouse and are not focused on the best interest of your child. They even posted their own positive reviews that trash their competiton (SuzieQ) and posted bad reviews for Speed Athletics to drive their ratings down. They are much too focused on business than they are on children... unless you are deemed a 'favorite'. If you go there, you'll be enticed by the flashy new facility and won over for a little while, but after a while you'll feel different. I do have to say there are some great coaches working there, but my kids have great coaches at their new gym too.view less
Bethe and Karlette run a top notch program. One of the oldest in the country, like another poster here we saw them and the way they treat the girls, the parents and their employees are wonderful. The routines are award winning on the national level, with fresh new choregraphy. The uniforms and makeup ARE age appropriate, but also so are the teams! Your mini age daughter will never be placed upon a senior age team!\r
The best cheer gym in the area hands down! We were at another local gym and hated how our daughter was treated. We saw hoe IE placed in local competitions and watched how the coaches interacted with the girls. That made us want to check them out. The girls are taught skills correctly, safely, and kindly! Everyone is treated with respect and the coaches don't need to scream at the girls to make their points. Plus, the uniforms and makeup are age appropriate. If you are looking fo...view morer a great competitive cheer gym, come here!view less
