Dreams Gymnastics Center is committed to offer the best for each child and safety is the first priority! Coaches will assess the best recreational class level to match each child’s ability and age. The recommendation will include an appropriate amount of challenge for the gymnast and provide a safe and fun learning environment.
Equipment especially designed and sized for little ones is used in a structured, but fun class. Gymnastics is the perfect first step for any small child to develop physical, cognitive and social skills. The classes are co-ed and separated by age to allow appropriate development and skill diversification. All lessons are progressive in development and focus on jumping, balancing, fine and gross motor skill development, spatial awareness, hand/eye and hand/foot coordination as well as inverted support. Many kindergarten-readiness skills are also incorporated, such as learning letters, numbers, colors, and promoting social development. The lessons are designed and implemented by the same coaches who teach the classes, allowing them to be a perfect fit for each child.

Gymnastics classes are offered for novice, progressive and advanced levels. Gymnasts are tested on skills to determine his/her appropriate level. All Olympic events are represented in class each week (vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor). The development of flexibility, strength and general coordination are implemented as well as the growth of self-confidence. Children are skill tested in a very low-key, no pressure format every 12 weeks to assure progress and to evaluate staff performance.

Dreams' Spartan boys' class features workouts and your child will be guided through step by step skill progressions and specific drills/exercises, providing the opportunity to effectively achieve and refine gymnastics skill, while progressing from beginner to advanced levels.
Spartan workouts are designed to improve overall athletic performance: strength, speed, conditioning and flexibility. In order to gain muscle strength - weightlifting and other resistance-based workouts are utilized. To improve speed - workouts featuring explosive exercises, sprinting and reaction drills are used to work on agility and quickness. To increase endurance and stamina, conditioning workouts that help burn fat and lose unhealthy weight are introduced. Lastly, to reduce risk of injury, increase joint range of motion, and improve overall mobility, Dreams Spartan athletes learn flexibility workouts that feature both dynamic and static stretching.
A safe and fun introduction to rolling, bouncing, twisting and all around movement awaits every child that enters our DREAMS gym! From warming up their muscles to going upside down on the rings, they will experience it all! We focus first on knowledge of the equipment and their comfort level with each event they visit. After introduction to vault, parallel and high bars, pommel horse, rings, floor exercise and trampoline (oh yes, there are trampolines!), they will begin developing body awareness along with fundamental and foundational skills that apply not only to gymnastics, but all athletics! We embrace individuality and celebrate success at all levels!
