Core Class Descriptions
PARENT & TOT PLAY GROUP
Parent & Tot Playgroup: our parent & tot class is an instructor lead exploratory gymnastics class for toddlers to become familiar with the gymnastics environment. Class lasts for 45 minutes and meets once per week. The fee is $30 per month. Parents and their tots explore together in the gym environment and perform skills on the tumbling apparatus, pit, and trampoline. This class is for children under 3 years and will prepare little athletes to venture into a class, without the help of mom or dad, by the time they are 4 years old. Having a parent or caregiver participate with the child encourages independence and exploration. As these mini athletes develop they will become comfortable with the gym, equipment and instructors. Music games, coordination games and tumbling skills will be introduced each class. Bring your toddler to our afternoon class or schedule your whole playgroup for a morning class adventure!

XMA Tumbling & Tricking (Superhero Training Class)
Xtreme Martial Arts aka, tricking! Made famous by the Power Rangers in the 80’s, XMA is a combination of elements from martial arts, acrobatics and gymnastics, with an emphasis on showmanship. The concept of adding gymnastics-like tumbling moves to elements of traditional martial arts is otherwise known as "tricking". XMA makes these exhibition moves the focus of the sport. Open hand and weapons choreography are often accompanied by dramatic dance or programmatic music. Many of the moves are high-flying aerial acrobatic maneuvers. These stunning movements attain the goal of capturing the crowd, improving physical agility, balance, strength, coordination, and endurance, as well as performing an artistic display of talent. The goal is to command the attention of the audience for exhibition, competition or film.
