Beginner & Intermediate
This class starts all together with a group warm-up and stretch, followed by basic tumbling drills. The class is then split into two groups: Beginner students require no prior gymnastics / tumbling experience; Intermediate students must at least be able to do either a front or back-handspring without a spot.
This class requires prior gymnastics / tumbling experience. Students in this class must be able to complete handsprings and saltos without a spot. Students will focus on advanced tumbling skills, which may include use of the foam pit, TumbleTrak, and trampoline.
Apparatus (All Levels)
This class is open to all levels. After a warm-up and stretch, students receive instruction on various gymnastics equipment, such as Pommel Horse, Rings, Parallel Bars, High Bar, Uneven Bars, Beam, and Trampoline.
This exciting class combines aspects of Parkour and Free Running. Students learn to overcome obstacles through running, jumping, climbing and other acrobatic movements. The class will begin with a warm-up, conditioning and core strength work, then moves to the fundamental movements of Parkour (vaults, precisions, strides, rolls and more). The class ends with a complete Parkour obstacle course.
I'm brand new to Gymnastics, will I be able to keep up with the Beginner class?
Yes! Our Beginner classes frequently have students with no gymnastics experience at all. If you're new to gymnastics, please be sure to talk to the instructor who will give you helpful tips. We're here to help!
How is the class conducted if there are both beginner and advanced gymnasts in the class?
Our coaches may divide the class into separate groups based on skill level, or they may provide drills with progressions so that each individual student is challenged appropriately.
