East Gymnastics Development classes are for children who have reached a certain level of skill, strength and flexibility. Classes are 1.5 hours and incorporate a substantial amount of strength and flexibility exercises. Skills are more advanced than in recreational classes, with a greater focus on correct technique, body tension and positioning.
Example skills include:
- Floor – backward/forward walkovers, round-offs, back handspring
- Beam – cartwheels, handstands, backward walkovers
- Bars – pullovers, glides, back-hip circles
- Vault – handspring-flatback, dive rolls, front handsprings, somersaults
East Gymnastics Development classes are by invitation only. If you feel your child has the ability to go straight into this level please contact us for an assessment.
