We offer a variety of classes throughout the week to suit all ages and abilities. You can view our weekly class timetable (correct as of January 2019) here.
Children aged 3-4 work independently of their parents. The emphasis is on fun, learning body management and the fundamentals of gymnastics - agility, balance and co-ordination. Our classes follow various themes such as weather, seaside and travel, and children are awarded badges and certificates on completion of each theme. These classes take place on a Wednesday and a Friday.
These classes are for boys and girls aged 4+ and require no previous training. Gymnasts work independently of their parents in small groups, working towards British Gymnastics Proficiency awards 8-1 and becoming familiar with the four pieces of apparatus used in gymnastics- vault, bars, beam and floor. Classes are 1 hour long and take place most days of the week.
