Classes

We offer a variety of classes at Mid-Illinois Gymnastics and Dance.

Students receive professional, progressive, safety-oriented instruction in fundamental movement and gymnastics skills in all our classes.

In addition to GREAT TEACHERS, we have all the newest technology available for tumbling and equipment work including carpeted spring and foam floor, foam and solid pits, special mats, Tumbl-Track, Rod, Floor, Balance Beams, Uneven Bars, Vault Horses, Trainer Bars, Pre-School play shapes and a hardwood floor dance room with balcony overlooking the gym.  Gymnastic or dance classes provide high-level physical fitness as well as recreational fun.  Dance is scheduled separately with dance instructors.

Mid-Illinois Gymnastics and Dance emphasizes basic movement and progression that leads to an improvement in agility, flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, confidence and self-esteem.  The physical, mental and emotional discipline, while so essential in a good gymnastics and dance environment, becomes a great asset in any other sport or physical training that the student pursues.

For more information and for details about competitive team classes, please inquire in person.
