Skyview Class Programs
A child's age for Fall Session Classes
is determined by his or her age on August 30, 2012.

Grasshoppers - Four/Five Year Olds
Butterflies - Five/Six Year Olds

SKYVIEW classes for young children are full of action packed fun on the mats, beam,bars, rings, rope and trampoline. Children develop body and spatial awareness, co-ordination, strength, flexibility and balance through movement exploration. Older children begin to work on gymnastics progressions (which lead to higher level skills) and basic tumbling. Class groups are generally limited to 6 students per instructor. 45 minutes.
Dragonflies (girls) & Fireflies (boys) - Ages 4.5 to 6 by Invitation
60 minute classes for younger children who are ready for a bit more challenge. Admission is by Invitation, based on the child's skill level and maturity.
Elementary School through Teens
SHOWTEAM - Age 8 & up
Showteam is a special class, offered only during the Fall Session, designed for children who love to perform! It's the place for children who watch the Skyview Gymdancers and Acrobats longingly and wonder "How do I get to do that?" The Showteam performs with the Gymdancers and the Skyview Teams in our Winterfest Celebation in December. Participants must have Level 2/3 floor skills and must be enrolled in a Gymnastics or Tumbling Class in addition to the Showteam.
Acrobatic Gymnastics - Age 6 & up
Learn about the Art and the Sport of Acrobatic Gymnastics. Skyview is the home of National Champions, National Team Members, and International medalists in this beautiful sport. It is one our most amazing specialties! Students must be at least 6 years old and also enrolled in a gymnastics class, a tumbling class, or any of our other Team programs. A perfect place to begin if you are interested in Acrobatics.
Aerial Gymnastics - Age 8 & up
Imagine yourself soaring under the Big Top! This beautiful circus art brings a new dimension to gymnastics at Skyview. Learn to dance in the air with the Aerial Silks and Lyra (suspended hoop). Students must be at least 8 years old and also enrolled in a gymnastics class, a tumbling class, or one of our other Team programs.
Girls Gymnastics (Levels 1 - 4) - Age 6 & up
The basics of Women's Artistic Gymnastics (bars, beam, floor exercise and vault), with a bit of trampoline and acrobatics. Great all-around training for fitness and fun! Our first priorities are safety, and a healthy respect for the human body - its limitations and its range of amazing possibilities. Students are grouped according to age and skill level with specific criteria for advancement.
Boys Gymnastics – Age 6 & up
Special attention is given to the skills and apparatus used in Men’s Artistic Gymnastics - parallel bars, pommel horse, rings, vault, horizontal bar, and floor exercise. Classes are designed to develop general fitness - strength, power, flexibility, and coordination - and to introduce the competitive events.
Tumbling and Trampoline (T & T) - Age 5 and up
An excellent alternative for students who do not particularly enjoy the challenges of the artistic apparatus. Perfect for aspiring cheerleaders! The "Jumping Beans" class is for 5 to 8 year olds, and the regular class sequence (Tumble 1, 2, 3...) is for students who are at least 8 years old. FLIP! is designed for older children - age 8 & up - who are interested in training "air time" for diving, parcour, or other "xtreme" sports. All T & T classes include trampoline, TumblTrak, mini-tramp, rod floor, and conditioning for strength and flexibility.
