A Message to Parents

Brain growth is stimulated by use for children between the ages of two and six, with completion of development by the age of seven. A program of physical activity into a child’s life can strongly influence the process of brain growth and neurological organization. The following classes offered by the Kinetics Department are specifically designed to stimulate intellectual growth as well as physical development. Our program ensures that each child gets the opportunity to achieve his or her potential.


Gymnastics is progressive by nature. Classes build on top of one another. It is very important to understand that it takes time to develop strength, flexibility and coordination to achieve the skills necessary to advance to the next level. Gymnastics takes time, patience, repetition and love for the sport in order to excel. Success in gymnastics is measured in small steps.
