Early Childhood Development

Imaginastics class with instructor showing female toddler how to somersault“I have been taking Imaginastics and Circus Arts for over three years. I love being active, making new friends, and learning new fun tricks each week. Ever since my mom signed me up for Imaginastics when I was in Kendergarten [sic], I get excited every week to go to class. Practicing balancing on the ball and on the silks has been so fun!” –Keira W.

Our early childhood development classes benefit kids ages 2-7. These classes help children explore their body’s capacity for movement, promote early social-emotional growth, socialization and physical development such as gross motor skills by fostering a foundation of life-long physical movement through highly interactive hands-on explorations, small group activities and facilitated engagement by parents.

Help prepare your child for the transition to Kindergarten and other structured classroom settings.

Parent-Tot Gymnastics

An active child is a happy and healthy child. Enjoy a fun and playful atmosphere that encourages parents and children to be active together in a safe, structured class environment. An opportunity to spend quality time with your child while conditioning muscles, developing hand eye coordination, learning gross motor skills, improving cardiovascular fitness, and learning socialization. Children are taught age appropriate gymnastics movements and concepts through learning a new “trick of the week” at each meeting. Through their newly acquired skills, your child will develop strength, creativity, and self-esteem while parents enhance flexibility and strength during this quality bonding time. Parents are required to have hands on participation in every class as their child is given the opportunity to try several pieces of gymnastic equipment. Parents learn how to help their child practice these new skills safely outside of class. Please make prior arrangements for siblings not registered for class.

Imaginastics

Expand your child’s imagination while they have fun through learning gymnastics, basic circus skills and the art of storytelling. Young children develop strength and coordination skills through fun and creative activities. This program, specifically designed to work with growing minds and bodies, enhances memory and agility skills and is without parent participation to encourage independence. Each class begins with a warm-up, tumbling, and circus arts instruction. Students then listen to a story and act it out using their bodies and new-found skills. Benefits include: increased hand-eye coordination, sensory integration, fine and gross motor movements, agility, memory, independence, rhythm skills and socialization. Parents are invited to observe the last class when students showcase their work.

Introduction to Circus Arts

In this circus class, students gain an introduction to the Circus Arts, developing a basic skill set while increasing their strength and flexibility. Tumbling, aerial silks, trapeze, juggling, and tight wire are among the skills offered.

Tumbling

From handstands and cartwheels to walkovers and handsprings. Perfect for kids who want to learn basic tumbling skills.
