GYMNASTICS

Gymnastics is one of the most comprehensive lifestyle exercise programs available to children. These classes incorporate strength, flexibility, speed, balance, coordination, power, and discipline. The skills learned in gymnastics can benefit a child’s overall development in many different ways at any age.

 

Classes are typically held in the evening during the week and Saturday mornings. See the front desk for scheduled times.
