This structured class is cheerful and fun, and will help your child’s coordination and confidence grow.  With the assistance of an adult, your child will experience a great variety of gymnastics equipment.  The unique circuits are changed each week to follow a theme, and they work towards accomplishing an age-appropriate skill (balances, forward rolls, mini handstands and more).  We work on developing their skills while a parent is nearby for encouragement.  Through the use of manipulative objects such as balls, hoops, ribbons and beanbags, your child will begin to develop rhythm, fine motor and listening skills.
