Gymnastics classes are the heart of Gold Star, taught by coaches who are enthusiastic, dedicated to student advancement, and committed to safety. We offer classes for both the recreational gymnast and the competitive athletes, for students just learning to walk through teens and adults.
Our gymnastics classes are taught with a structured curriculum, a passion for the sport, and care of the children present in all our Gold Star programs. Student’s progress is documented during Star Weeks, five times a year. Star Week is designed to provide both feedback and motivation as students move through the program. Preschool students are given a ribbon indicating their level. Recreational gymnasts are given a poster corresponding to their class level. Students earn sticker stars for the skills they have mastered. Stars can then be put next to the appropriate skills on the poster at home.
Preschool classes are based in real gymnastics skills presented in an upbeat and engaging fashion. We work to balance repetition and novelty to help children both feel safe and stay excited about coming to gymnastics each week.
Walking to 3 years old | 45 minute classes
The class is structured for toddlers (with their parent’s assistance), and focuses on both gross motor and socialization skills. Students start lessons with a warm-up using manipulative props and end with a game incorporating music and dancing. In between are exercises on the gymnastics equipment: bars, beams, trampolines, springboards, and a multitude of mats. Children learn to jump, balance, and roll while practicing taking turns and following a circuit. Call for a free trial.

In our MiniStars program, children participate independently (without their parents).

Students start class with a warm-up using manipulative props and end with a game incorporating music and dancing. Students progress through three levels of instruction, mastering basic gross motor movements to more advanced gymnastics techniques. Call for a free trial.
These classes are committed to safety, teaching true gymnastics skills, all while maintaining the excitement of rolling and cartwheeling through space. School-age students are separated by gender and ability (except for our Teen and Adult classes which are co-ed and multi-level).
