Preschool Gymnastics


All of our preschool classes are based on age and not ability. Our preschoolers always do a floor circut and either a circut on beam or bars. We teach beginner gymnastics such as forward and backward rolls, cartwheels and handstands. Preschoolers will learn how to hold themselves up on the bars, swing and gain strength. On beam they will learn different walks, balances, jumps and start working rolls and handstands. We always try to tailor our preschool classes based on the age and ability of the young gymnasts enrolled. Some of our preschool classes can look very advanced, but we're always having FUN!

Classes are offered year round. Preschool classes are offered Monday-Thursday and Saturday. Please refer to the Class Offerings page or check out the schedule to see specific days and times for each class. Sessions are 12 weeks long during the school year and we offer two 5 week sessions in the Summer. 

Ages 18 Mo.-3Yrs.

Sparklers 45 min/week

This is a Parent/Child class. Parents are present to help the little ones learn taking turns, standing in line and give encouragment. We focus on very basic gymnastics skills and motor development. We incorporate a lot of balance and strength builiding exercises. It's a great time to play with your child!

Ages 3 yrs.-4 yrs.

Shooting Stars 1 hour/week

Our Shooting Stars class focuses on perfecting the basic gymnastics skills. Students will start working skills on the floor instead of on training shapes, and doing more and more on their own.
