This class is simply an advanced version of our Shining Star Class. These students know the ropes and are ready to move on to bigger and better things. Although the skill differences are sometimes tough to see, it is the listening and directional skills that provide for a more advance learning experience. Many of the same gymnastics skills and concepts from previous level classes are used but enhanced, improved upon and perfected. Instructors will be working on the proper mechanics of rolling forward and backward, handstands, beginner cartwheels as well and the basic fundamentals on trampoline, bars and beam.

Our coaches will focus on advancing the cartwheel variations, handstands, and bridge as well as advancing the skills on bars and beam.

All Stars (Recreational gymnastics)

This class is 1.5 hours in length, and is for 6 - 12 year olds. This is the first level where students get full 15-minute rotations on all of the events. This will be their first exposure to vaulting and therefore the use of the run, run technique, and board technique will be mastered prior to attempting anything over the actual vault.  Our coaches will continue to progress the basic skills like:  front roll on beam, handstands on beam, hip pullovers, back hip circles on bars, bridge kick-overs, intro to back walkovers and back handsprings. This class is the training ground for our Super Stars program and therefore requires a greater attention to detail in a more serious learning environment. All this is taught in a fun and caring environment and will follow and in-house level system.
