Develop your whole child in our clean, fun, enriching environment

Coaches for these classes have a genuine love for children and are looking out for your child's emotional growth as well as their physical achievements.   Saying it another way, if you are concerned about the character of the people who mentor your children, Aerial Express is the clear best choice for your kids. We are looking to develop your child inside and out! 

Remember parents -- at these ages and levels children develop at their own pace. Be positive about each step in the process of learning. It is our goal to find just the right balance of challenge and success for each child. 


Parent and Tot Class - 30 minute class for preschool students 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 years old. 

Parents help to guide students under the direction of an experienced  Instructor. Students will work on bars, balance beam, tumbling and vault. These students will be learning to circuit, follow directions, wait for their turn, as well as basic gymnastics skills.

Teddies - 30 minute class for 3 and 4 year olds.

No parents here -- students are learning how to stay with a group, beginning to understand and follow directions and are developing independence from their parents.

        Our lesson plans are designed to introduce physical activities that engage imagination while developing gross motor skills, strength, coordination and early gymnastics skills. Skills would include: forward rolls, early stage cartwheels, jumping, hanging, and front supports. 

Pandas- 45 minute class  This class is for age 4 - 6 year olds currently in kindergarten. This class will focus on gross motor skills (coordination, strength, spacial awareness and body control).  Students are beginning to understand multi-step instructions. Gymnastics skills are developing and are challenged individually. Skills included: Forward and backward rolling, cartwheels,  elevated bridges, arm hangs,  leg lifts and squat-ons, just to name a few. Reinforcing colors, counting, alphabet, shapes as well as good listening skills. Students are evaluated to move to other levels. 

Tigers - 45 minute class  Must be at least 4 years old -6 year olds who are currently kindergartners.Similar to Pandas except more focus on being able to do skills on their own.  Students are experienced in circuiting and are gaining the basics and maturity they need to move on. Students will be evaluated to move levels.

Leopards - 45 minute class This class for ages 4 1/2 -6 year olds who are currently kindergartners. This level is based on improving  basic skills: bridges, pullovers, handstands, tripods , vertical cartwheels, arch backs, running/punching for vault and kicks, walks and dips on balance beam. Your child will be taught principles such as respect, responsibility, self confidence, persistence, and teamwork. Students are evaluated for mobility to next class.

Cheetahs- 45 minute class This class is for ages 5-6 year olds who are currently kindergartners. This level is  preparing for Large gym integration as well as learning skills leading to competitive possibilities. Basics that are learned correctly at this age stay with a gymnast throughout their gymnastics career. We feel it is so important to not skip to more exciting skills with a lack of a foundation to do them correctly. Patience at this stage is so important and will be rewarded.
