Our 1 hour Tots classes are designed for our pre-school aged children, and are a fun introduction to Calisthenics. Classes can be filled with fairy wings, climbing, balancing and singing all while learning their basic skills. Co-ordination, musicality, listening, counting, fine and gross motor skills are just some of the benefits gained from class.
Children learn 4 routines over the course of the year, and get to perform on stage a number times including at the end of year concert*.

These classes are for our students aged 7 years and under. Like the tots classes, children learn 4 routines over the course of the year and perform on stage in a number of competitions and at the end of year concert. The focus is on the joy of performance and participation.
These early years lay the groundwork for good technique, teamwork, flexibility, strength, deportment and discipline all wrapped up in costumes, performance and friendships.
The Sub Junior section is for pupils aged 8 to 10 years. These classes are where they learn a love for the sport. The growth in the skill set from a first year Sub Junior to a final year Sub Junior is immense and amazing! Friendships are formed; technique, strength and flexibility are developed. Celebrating these students in a happy environment encourages them want to learn more and be the best they can! Motivation is best when it comes from inside.
