Dance and Gymnastics work great hand-in-hand. The club provides three fantastic private squads for school children aged from reception class to high school. Children are taught core gymnastics skills on the vault, bars, beam and floor. We are also privileged that our head coach has her very own tumble air-track to aid students with their learning.
Squads are split via ability- we have INFANTS, JUNIORS AND INTERMEDIATES. We also have an 'elite' training squad called ‘Defying Gravity’ for students with particular aptitude.
As an age guideline for booking- infants are 4-6 yrs, intermediates are 7-9 yrs and advanced 10-15 yrs BUT at your first class after coming to the age appropiate session- the coaches will assess your child and see where they will fit best in terms of their ability. So this could be up or down a squad- or maybe the age guideline was just right for you!
As a club, we strongly believe in tangible achievement and as such; students are encouraged to work towards completing our award scheme (badges) as well as partaking in our annual display and in-house competitions. These are great occasions to show off the students’ hard work! However; we appreciate some students wish to attend just fun thus such like is not compulsory.
The club trains from Holt Park Active- but it is completely private in the sense the use of the hall and equipment is exclusive to our students and staff. We strive in offering an admirable student-teacher ratio resulting in more attention and support on apparatus for each student.
Classes run every Saturday afternoon term time.
We have four fully qualified club coaches who are affiliated to British Gymnastics (BAGA).
The Academy is fully insured and all teachers/helpers are DBS checked with relevant first aid training.
