Preschool Classes

Preschool classes range in time from 35 minutes to 75 minutes, one day per week.  These classes use gymnastics apparatus and equipment to focus on movement education.  We work on warming up the body, stretching, safely rolling, motor skill development, and teaching gymnastics fundamentals as the preschooler improves and gains strength and confidence.
