This class focuses more on skill development and builds on the skills they have been learning such as handstands, cartwheels, bridges and more! Kindergarten girls and boys develop a broader understanding of gymnastic basics, and continue to develop their coordination, agility, strength, power, balance and self confidence. Girls and Boys are co-ed. KinderBees will graduate to either Gymnastics, Flipz, or Ninja Classes and then will be grouped by skills, not age.
Our Ninja Program is available to boys and girls, ages 4-teens, regardless of past experiences. Classes help to build coordination, self-confidence, and strength; particularly upper body strength. Our Ninja program develops physical fitness while enriching self-worth as the students learn new skills in a fun and safe environment. Ninja training is a combination of gymnastics, obstacle course training, and physical fitness. Class levels and special events may vary per gym location. Classes are co-ed.
Our Tumble Bee gymnastics classes are designed for girls and boys who have mastered walking through 5 years old. Our curriculum is designed to stimulate learning through fun for each child and to create a healthy and enjoyable experience that your child will look forward to week after week.

The philosophy behind our Gymnastics program, for both girls and boys, is to encourage children to develop confidence, become aware of capabilities, and strive to their potential. We provide progressions and skills for Beginner gymnasts through level 4. We have a very specific curriculum using the latest USA Gymnastics guidelines and progressions. Gymnastics is one of the most challenging sports in the world, but it is also a stepping-stone to great success in other sports. Many great athletes in several other sports owe their success to a foundation built in gymnastics. Girls and Boys are in separate classes once they are in 1st grade due to different equipment used.
