Serious gymnastics made FUN!
Mommy & Me (18 months to 3 1/2 years old)
Mommy & Me classes are designed for the teacher to help you assist your child in learning gymnastics. We explore basic motor development through songs, warm-ups, and the use of an obstacle course. Toddlers will learn very basic gymnastics skills, including rolls, jumps and balance. The class is structured and learning takes place in a comfortable environment that promotes socialization and smiling.
Preschool Gymnastics (3 & 4 years old)
In our co-ed Preschool classes, the social skills of sharing, helping others, and listening politely are as important to learn as gymnastics skills. Gymnastics classes are typically youngsters' first experience with a "school" setting. Gymnastics classes for this age group cater to the children's need for social development as well as movement education.Teachers of this age group present the students with basic gymnastics skills such as rolling, swinging, jumping, and balancing. Body positions, which they will use month after month, are instilled through repetition. These positions include tuck, straddle, pike, and stretch. More difficult skills such as backward rolls, handstands, and cartwheels are attempted with the aid of the teacher. Mastery of these challenging skills is not expected at this age. Children must be potty trained to participate.
