Basic floor gymnastics such as rolls, headstands, handstands, cartwheels, round-offs and more are taught. Locomotor skills and basic leaps, jumps, and turns are practiced. Creative Dance is incorporated so students may explore basic elements of dance through personal imagination and individual expression. Creative Gymnastics classes safely integrate basic floor, tramp, vault, and bar skills for young children.

Acro Dance, short for acrobatic dance, is about flexibility and control. This technique is a popular choice for students bridging the gap between skills in the gym and the dance studio! The class focuses on leg extensions, holds on the floor (headstands, elbow stands, and chest stands), and partnering tricks. The class will also work on gymnastics fundamentals; a majority of acrobatic tricks evolve from basic skills such as handstands and bridges.
