KinderBees (Ages Kindergarten 5 & 6)
Kindergartners enjoy bigger challenges and more independence than our younger gymnasts, so we make sure to foster these great traits. This class focuses more on skill development and builds on the skills they have been learning such as handstands, cartwheels, bridges and more! They develop a broader understanding of gymnastic basics, and continue to develop their coordination, agility, strength, power, balance and self confidence. The Kindergarten program concludes with a Kindergarten Graduation in May.
As children going into first grade graduates from our Tumble Bee Program to start the progressive program in the summer.
