PRE-GYM PROGRAMS

Orange - 45 min (1's and 2's with parent)
(12-23 months - 8:1 student/teacher ratios) 

This 45 minute weekly class allows the caregiver and child a quality movement experience focused on basic motor skills, perceptual development and cognitive skills. Examples of activities include swinging on the bar, walking on a wide beam, or rolling a ball through a tunnel. Parent participation is required, as this age group is not developmentally ready to be separate from 
their parent or caregiver. The children must be able to walk without assistance.

Developmentally appropriate hand/eye coordinated activity as well as the educational concepts of both color and numbers are built into each class.

developmental milestones and include developing independence, social skills, coordination, and movement fundamentals.

Red - (older 4's w/ experience)

Mini-Tumbling

Progressive tumbling development designed for younger students. At GAA, we love to teach good basic tumbling skills in an age appropriate progressive environment. This is a great class for young athletes who want to pursue cheerleading or competitve gymnastics in the future.
