Gym Giraffe classes start with a 5 minute warm up activity, then move onto 3 different obstacle courses that will include tumbling, balance beam, trampoline and bars. Kids learn to stay at a particular station and to try repeat a skill multiple times before moving on when the teacher cues them. These young athletes will learn to master taking turns, waiting in lines, following directions and developing basic gymnastics skills.
