Zoo Babies Age 18 to 30 months – 30 Minutes
Zoo Babies is a parent participation, coach facilitated class geared towards our tiniest tumblers! We will focus on movement education – fine and gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination, body awareness and agility. This class is based on the USAG Preschool Fundamentals curriculum, and is a fun way for parents to help their children get ready for preschool and beyond!
Mini Monkeys Age 2 – 45 Minutes
Do you have too many monkeys jumping on the bed? This parent and child class is for the active 2-year-old who spends all day bouncing around the house. We will learn to hold our own body weight with our arms, how to go upside-down, how to jump, how to safely fall, and how to roll! In this class we begin to learn gymnastics skills on floor, trampoline and our toddler-sized bars and beams.
Tiger Tots Age 3 – 45 Minutes
Does your 3-year-old spend more time upside-down than right-side-up? This transitional class is for the enthusiastic new
gymnast who needs a place to use all that energy! Parents may wait in the lobby or be asked to participate based on your child’s listening and behavior skills. Our enthusiastic coaches will help your child to learn coordination and age-appropriate gymnastics skills such as forward rolls, swings on bars, walking and hopping on balance beams, and running and jumping with two feet on vault.
Little Lions Age 4 – 45 Minutes
This 4-year-old class is completely independent, allowing you to relax in the lobby or run to Giant Eagle or Starbucks while your child has a blast learning skills on bars, beam, floor, vault and trampoline. Using our specialized equipment, we will teach your little one gymnastics and tumbling. We will concentrate on a fun-based, safe teaching environment in this class as we learn body awareness, beginning handstands and monkey jumps (baby cartwheels), backward rolls, and fun bar skills!
Jungle Jaguars Age 5 – 60 Minutes
Your child wants to learn a cartwheel, and we want to teach them! In this incredible class we will teach beginner gymnastics using our smaller-sized equipment. In this class form, basics, and corrections will be implemented as we learn spatial awareness, bridges, cartwheels, handstands, and tons of other fantastic gymnastics skills!
