Intermediate Class: girls age 6 & up
Rhythmic gymnastics recreational classes are a fun way to gain flexibility and strength, while also learning the basics of apparatus handling. This class is a 45 min class.
Joining our competitive team is by invitation only, after achieving an appropriate level of flexibility, strength and apparatus handling through recreational classes and pre-team classes. It requires more practice hours per week and more commitment from the participants, and allows them to compete at local, state, regional and national competitions.
Stretching & Conditioning Class
This class has helped many gymnasts, dancers and cheerleaders greatly increase their flexibility while working along side our competitive team.
Beginners Class: girls age 4 & 5
This 45 min class is designed to introduce younger participants to the basics of gymnastics.
Private lessons can be scheduled for participants age 4 to 60 at Pooler Karate or Angel Learning Center. They are encouraged for our competitive team members.
Rhythmic Xcel is a USA gymnastics alternative program for recreationally competitive gymnasts, which celebrates what gymnasts CAN do rather than what they can't do. Our competitive team participates in Rhythmic Xcel competitions.
