Quotes from the episode:

“It’s a lot of fun for the girls, they enjoy each other, they get to know each other better on the teams because they are together for 19 weeks. We’ve seen them work together. There will always be 2 or 3 of the gymnasts in a corner that are working on dance moves, to help someone figure it out. So they are always there for each other, helping each other. They are really excited for when their team members get a new skill, knowing how hard they have worked on it. That first time when they stand it up, the whole gym just celebrates.” – Karen Schmidt
