All our students are grouped into class by their age. Skills are adjusted by individual student ability. In our general classes, gymnastic instruction is for 55-60 minutes. At the beginning of each class there is Warm-up and Stretching. This is important for getting the body ready for gymnastics, and also to teach the youngsters various body positions used in gymnastics.
2/3 year old classes are 30 minutes long. The first few minutes will be to stretch and warm-up the muscles. During this warm-up, some activities are done to music in order to develop rhythm and listening skills. Students are gathered every 5-7 minutes to continue learning skills.
Please have your child in class on time, as this warm-up period is also extremely important in preventing injuries. If you are 15 minutes late, your child will not be able to participate in our classes.
Please use extreme caution when entering or exiting the facility’s parking lot. PLEASE KEEP ALL OF OUR CHILDREN SAFE! Parents are encouraged to watch their children but are not allowed to enter the workout area. Please refrain from any gestures or verbal cues while students are in class. This is distracting to both students and instructors.
