~We start every class with a solid foundation in gymnastics. Our mommy and me fitness class will teach physical fitness, promote socialization, and strengthen the bond between parent and child, designed for children ages 3 months to 18 months of age. Each class takes advantage of our modern facility and innovative obstacle courses. Classes incorporate music, tumbl trak and other gymnastic apparatus. Activities help develop gross and fine motor skills while focusing on sitting, rolling, walking, creeping and crawling.
~GemNastics mommy & me classes are a parent participation class where child and parent can exercise, enhance flexibility and self-esteem while focusing on working together and enjoying each others company. Parents will learn how to spot basic gymnastics skills and navigate through obstacle courses. Helping your child overcome fears and celebrating victories, big or small, while bonding with your child in a gymnastics environment. We will focus on gross and fine motor skills that are appropriate for this age group: catching, throwing, lifting, climbing, balancing.
~GemNastics preschool gymnastics, Tumble gems and Pearls classes will help build hand/eye coordination, perceptual motor skills, spacial awareness, directionality and listening skills. These classes are designed for children ages 2-5 years old. Your child will learn basic loco-motor skills, coordination, social skills, and learn how to navigate obstacle courses. Helping children achieve age specific milestones: jumping with 2 feet, balancing on 1 foot, climbing up and down, skipping, galloping, understanding body awareness, muscle control and depth perception. Progressively, your child grow more skillful and independent and be introduced to higher skill levels.

~When your child is ready to start school aged gymnastics classes, the Ruby class is designed for children ages 5 and up. Your child will be introduced to progressively harder skills. Our staff tailors to each child's needs and allows them to succeed individually as well as within a group. Children will learn and perfect basic shapes and movements of gymnastics. We start every year with safety and shapes. Throughout the year we build upon skills and connecting them into larger movements. The end goal is for every child to know basic skills on each event: floor, bar, beam, vault. Basic skills on floor: rolls, handstands, cartwheels, dance moves. Beam skills include: walking, kicks, jumps, balance using different shapes such as bear and inchworm. Uneven bar skills for school aged classes consist of pull overs, casting, underswings and body strength. Skills on vault during school aged classes teach children how to use the vault board correctly, squat on, squat through and jumping off the vault and sticking their landings. All of these skills are accomplished in a positive, fun and energetic environment. When your child has mastered these skills, your coach may invite you to our advanced classes.
