Budding gymnasts have a chance to learn the basics in "Little Leapers Gymnastics."
There are eight four-week sessions continuing through April 4 at City Hall. Each class meets weekly for four weeks. There are three different levels for children of different ages in the program:
Dynamic Duo, Parent & Child, for children 18 months through age 3. Participants will learn fundamentals. Each class will include a warm up, skill development period and closing activity. Themes will change throughout the year and include creative skill building activities. Classes meet from 5:15 to 5:45 p.m.
Pond Hoppers, for children age 3.5 to 5. Participants will be introduced to beginning skills on the floor, vault, bars and beam. The course's goal is to develop each child's physical potential and increase self esteem by providing a successful experience in a non-competitive setting.
Rising Stars, for children age 5.5 to 8. Children will be introduced to progressions, terminology and beginning skills on floor, vault, bars and beam.
