We made DD a beam out of wood many years ago and she has always made up little routines on it. She has been trying to work on improving her beam turns and she was on the beam practicing the other day and she said that it was different doing it on the wood beam then using the beam at the gym. She said her foot turns different. I was wondering if any one had any good ideas of something that I could cover the top of the beam with that would more closely resemble the real beam. I was thinking there might be something that I could buy at the fabric store that might work. Any sugguestions?
