It Takes Two (18 months to 3 years)
This 45-minute class for parents and toddlers is designed to not only teach the fundamentals of gymnastics and body awareness through basic body positions and movements, but also to introduce the child to developmental skills such as listening, following instructions, and waiting their turn. Parents/guardians will be asked to accompany their child during the class to assist them in following directions, but most importantly to encourage the child to try new skills.
