In this fun class, we use songs to gain body awareness and group activities to develop social skills and group confidence. We will work on basic gross motor skills, such as jumping, running, and galloping, as well as basic gymnastic skills, such as forward rolls, swinging on the bars, and walking on the beam. This class also incorporates a little more exploration time to give your child a chance to figure things out on their own; this will help your child grow in confidence, strength, and intellect.
