The Little Gym started in 1976 with the philosophy of encouraging children to do their best in a non-competitive environment. The Little Gym says that their gymnastics routines as based on the USA Men's and Women's compulsory routines for levels 1-4 but children are not "scored" or "graded". Grace has been taking gymnastics lessons here for about 1 1/2 years. I don't expect her to become a competitive gymnast but we see her developing confidence, new physical skills, have having a great time each week! And it is much more fun since our friend, Dawson, joined!
Tonight was the "show" for her Funny Bugs class. After a couple of warm ups and group cooperation exercises, the kids divided into three groups and showed off their skills on the bars, beam, and floor. It was far from perfect, but fun to watch!
At the end, every child received a medal and posed for pictures. They were so proud.
