Gymnastics Class Catalog

For Students Ages 1-3

ME AND MY SHADOW
This class is structured specifically for our youngest gymnasts. Children ages 18 through 36 months will take part in weekly classes that promote increased physical strength while developing fine and gross motor skills, coordination, and balance. Each class boasts a different weekly theme relating to concepts such as colors, counting, and sign-language. Parent participation required.

For Students Ages 3-4

TUMBLE TOTS
This class is structured specifically for our nursery- and preschool-aged students. Although we are not afraid to boast the skills learned in our Gym Stars classes, our main goal is summed up in three simple letters – F-U-N! Each week, the children are introduced to a different theme – there are mountains to climb, rivers to swim, animals to imitate, and more! All the while, children are gaining an understanding of their bodies’ capabilities and limitations as they take part in skills on the balance beam, bars, floor exercise, vault, and rings.

For Students Ages 3-5

DANCING ACROBATS
This 18-week class offers the perfect combination of gymnastics and dance for preschool and kindergarten-aged students. During the first 30 minutes of class, the students engage in movement through self-exploration and beginning ballet instruction. The final 30 minutes of class is spent participating in group activities in addition to balance beam, bars, and tumbling skills in our fully equipped gym.

For Students Ages 4-5
