Marla Bradley,

Owner, Gymnastics

& Ninja Instructor

Marla is business manager and oversees all locations and staff at Inclusion Athletics (Inclusion Dance, Gymnastics, Ninja Warrior Parkour, and Inclusion Fitness). Marla also owns North Country Website Design. Marla coached the Forest Park High School and Middle School Dance Teams for 8 years. During that time, the Dance Teams went to many competitions and won many awards. Marla has always tried to focus on students’ abilities and the way each dancer fits into the team as a whole. Each student’s special ability is emphasized to show that every person has different strengths. Marla believes it is very important that a team should work together to help one another strive to make each other better, not only as an athlete, but as a person. Being on a team teaches children to work hard, be punctual, work well with others, and to support their teammates. These are the characteristics that will be found at Inclusion Athletics. Marla wants to see everyone included! Fairness isn’t giving everyone the same thing. Fairness is giving everyone what they need to succeed. Not everyone will be treated the same because not everyone is the same. Treating everyone fairly and including them is important at Inclusion Dance. 2023-2024 is Marla’s seventh season owning and managing Inclusion Dance.
