Welcome to All-Star Performance Institute (API)

We are the fastest-growing all-star cheerleading gym in Missouri. We’re dedicated to providing you the very best cheerleading and tumbling instruction.

Founded in 2015 by Melissa and Jesse Wilhite, All-Star Performance Institute has come a long way from its beginnings in a small 1700 square foot facility. API now has over 8,000 square feet of space for cheerleading and tumbling classes. We offer competitive cheerleading teams for the novice, prep, and elite all-star teams. Our recreational tumbling program is ranked as one of the best in the state. As the largest cheer gym in Columbia, Missouri we take pride in treating all of our customers like family.

We hope you enjoy our program as much as we enjoy having you as a customer. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us and info@apicomo.com or 573-228-1502
