Orson Sykes - Owner/Director

Twist & Shout was established in 1996 by Orson and his wife, Marketia Sykes.  Twist & Shout has been highly successful over the past 16 years by winning multiple national championships at NCA, WSF, Jamfest and CheerPower.  Twist & Shout has competed at the USASF Worlds for the past 7 years and has brought home two bronze, three silver, and was 2011's Gold Medalist in the Large Limited Coed division.  Orson also received the honor of being named USASF's Coach of the Year in 2011 and had the most votes ever since the award's existence.

Orson was a competitive gymnast at the University of Oklahoma where he was a member of the 1991 NCAA National Championship team. He was also the Big 8 conference champion on vault in 1992 and in 1993 he joined the University of Oklahoma's cheer squad and was a part of the NCA National Championship team.  Orson also served as an assistant gymnastic coach at OU for two years before he and his wife started Twist & Shout.  He continues to coach various high-school programs in the state and travels around the country doing choreography for high schools, all-star programs and universities.  Orson is also very involved in unifying the all-star community as a member of the USASF National Advisory Board and is a member of the USASF Disciplinary Committee.
