Ever since Gabby Douglas entered my daughter’s life, she has been intrigued by both her story of determination and
gymnastics. To date, I have never enrolled her in a gymnastics class but just might try out a basic class to teach her how to roll, tumble, etc. She says she is not all that flexible but after a few tutorials, we’ll see just how flexible those bones and muscles are.
Before my youngest started preschool, I enrolled him in the My Little Gym program out in Merrick with he absolutely loved! It’s a little of a drive, but it’s totally worth it. I hated having to leave the program but it just wasn’t possible any longer. I think this program was a great introduction into tumbling, balance, and socializing with other tots.
Here’s a list of local gymnastics programs I found. Remember, I do not have first hand knowledge of any of these programs other than the ones noted. Most of them have summer camps, dance, cheerleading, and more programs available aside from gymnastics. It also looks like they all have party packages available for birthdays.
If you have experience with any of them, please let me know.
