Gem City offers a variety of recreational classes, which can be started as young as 18 months and still enjoyed into adulthood. The benefits of our gymnastics, tumbling, cheer, and kinder gem are many! We offer a great opportunity to learn and gain strength from the chance to make new friends and build self-esteem to the development of motor skills and the many benefits of exercise.
We coach athletes with a system of progressions to move each athlete toward their full potential. We do this for two reasons: 1) safety and 2) good basic skills are the key to the big fancy skills.
