This class is a movement-based class that focuses on basic gross motor skills that are developmentally appropriate for babies just learning how to move!  Music is incorporated to encourage a fun time!  Age-appropriate progressions will take place that will encourage those basic, developmentally appropriate gross motor skills such as being able to lift his/her head up when on stomach, sitting with little and then later, no support at the waist, standing when held while bending knees and supporting weight with legs, to then being able to start rolling back to front, pivot and creep on stomach, start standing stiff-legged while holding onto furniture, and eventually being able to crawl over and around objects, cruise around furniture, pull to stand while holding onto furniture and finally walking!  All of these activities are done in a gymnastics environment using mats, toys, developmentally appropriate equipment, and in the company of other parents and babies!  The class portion will take place for 30 minutes and the remaining 15-30 minutes will be open play for parents to socialize with their babies as they play and move!

The purpose of this beginner class is to have parents work side-by-side with their child in a fun, comfortable atmosphere. This class helps toddlers get a head start on developing gross and fine motor skills, basic coordination, listening skills, and interactive play. The children will learn how to explore various surfaces and how to do basic gymnastics with a coach and parent in collaboration. The children learn how to jump, do rolls, learn spatial awareness, develop hand-eye coordination, and start to work on balance. Music is also incorporated to increase excitement and encourage movement! This class is designed to be fun and high-energy where you and your child will enjoy being together in a gymnastics environment. The progressions of this class follow those of our Little Tumblers class, but with a parent by their side. Once children are ready to be independent of their parents and at the coach’s discretion, they are invited to move to our Little Tumblers Class.

Each class is 1 hour and 15 minutes long.  Shining Stars teaches gymnasts basic, fundamental gymnastics skills and every student must start there before being promoted to Shooting or Soarin’ Stars. Children are regularly evaluated for such programs and parents can also request an evaluation.
