Gymnastics

InstructorKristin Harenchar
We offer a gymnastics program for ages 2-18 in a fun, safe environment. You have the option of recital & non-recital classes to choose from. All classes & levels will learn skills on bars, beam, vault & floor. Our recital classes will incorporate floor skills learned throughout the year with a dance that they perform at our annual recital in June.

Tumbling classes are also available for students who wish to focus on mastering gymnastics skills on the floor mat. No gymnastics equipment is used in these classes. Tumbling is a great choice for dancers, cheerleaders and students who participate in other sports to help enhance flexibility.

A limited number of private or semi-private classes may be available; contact the instructor if interested.
