In each class, we offer a variety of gymnastics / movement skills in a themed creative atmosphere of fun - aimed to develop the whole child - socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically.
Our themed activities (which change fortnightly) are designed to offer a colourful and stimulating gym space, which helps create a fun atmosphere for parents and children to enjoy. All our equipment is child-sized and ready for action with safety always our top priority.
Discovering new friends through the weekly classes is also important while children learn about teamwork from fun activities like 'parachute' and treasure hunt games.
All our sessions run for one hour and with small class groups, your child can be guaranteed to receive quality coaching and specialised, individual attention. Our coaches are not only skilled and experienced but they also love to see their group growing in confidence each week.
