In our Kinder 1 classes, children ages 4 & 5 work on running, jumping, throwing, & hopping, along with other gymnastic activities such as walking across balance beams and swinging on the bars. They will also be learning how to do rolls, cartwheels, and handstands on the floor. This class also provides children with the opportunity to work independently, follow directions, and practice good listening skills.

In our Basic 1 program, boys and girls age 6+ explore the foundation of gymnastics. This includes learning how to do rolls, handstands, cartwheels, bridges, and dance elements such as leaps and chasses on the floor. They will learn coordination through walking, jumping, and hopping on the balance beams. They will gain arm strength by swinging and circling on the bars. And they will also gain speed and power by learning proper running and jumping on the vault.

At Elevate Gymnastics Academy we also offer cheerleading/tumbling classes - Girls work on round offs, flip flops, back and front flips, jumps on the trampoline for cheerleading, and overall flexibility & strength. These classes only work on the floor and trampolines.
Can I bring a friend to my gymnastics class?
You can bring a friend to take a free trial class. As long as you are in a beginning level class and there is enough room, you can bring a friend to take the class with you. We do recommend that your friend tries a class at the day and time that she/he plans to stay in so she/he can meet the instructor that they will have. Your friend's parent must call in advance to register for the free trial class. All necessary EGA Release and Liability forms must be signed by a parent or legal guardian before attending class.
If my children are not on a Team, do they get to participate in the Summer Olympics?
Elevate Summer Olympics is actually not just for the competitive team, but is set up for all levels at Elevate Gymnastics Academy. Each child learns a routine on 2 events (i.e. Balance Beam and Floor). They practice these routines for a couple of weeks and then each child is given a chance to show them off at Elevate Summer Olympics during regular class time. Each child receives a Gold Medal!
What are the Winter Presentations?
The Winter Presentations are very similar to the Elevate Summer Olympics, except that each child learns a routine on multiple events. They then practice these routines for a couple of weeks and then show them off at the Winter Presentations, where each child receives a blue ribbon and a candy cane.
When the Gym closes, do you give make-up classes?
Classes are set-up on a 48 classes per year basis, so that is why we don't give make-ups when the Gym is closed.
