Dancing Plus Gymnastics ... Plus More
27 Hanse Ave, Freeport NY 11520
We offer a variety of classes from beginner to advanced. Our focus is on good technique and form that are the essential foundation for every gymnast. Bad habits are hard to break. We have small classes with experienced teachers so that each student gets individual attention.
Students will be placed in classes that are appropriate for their age, experience and technique. As with any activity, the more you practice, the better you get, so it is highly recommended that any gymnast take at least two core classes.
Whether your child has extra energy that needs a focus - or is a gymnast with some experience who needs to learn back and front handsprings, tucks and layouts - we have classes to fit your needs.
This class is designed to give children the skills and confidence they need to move to the intermediate level of gymnastics. Focus is on basic moves such as rolls, handstands, cartwheels and bridges, while developing a foundation of strength, flexibility as well as a passion for the sport.
