Level Descriptions:


Ducklings (Yellow Feather)

Ducklings is the first step in creating confidence in young children! In an organized yet playful structure, this class is the perfect way to socialize your child, allow them to learn to follow instruction, and, of course, get them moving! Our Ducklings will focus on listening skills, fundamental movement and coordination, motor skill development, body awareness, imagination, and character through gymnastics instruction! The Ducklings will be Introduced to each gymnastics apparatus that is pre-school appropriate for both boys and girls!
Baby Jays (Blue Feather)

After our Ducklings grow up, they move on to become Baby Jays, flying fast to the next stage of learning! In this level we begin to introduce more complex skills while building strength, coordination, as well as body and spatial awareness. These birds will continue to improve their motor skills while having fun!

Tiny Toucans (Orange Feather)

Next up in the Nest, we have the vibrant Toucan! This is a big step toward flying out of the nest and quite an achievement! We are now kicking to a handstand against the wall, showing big kid skills on bars and beam, and showing strength and flexibility on all events. Tiny Toucans generally take one 45 minute class per week but can move up even faster by participating in two classes per week!  Students who pass Tiny Toucans may be asked to join one of our invitation only classes: Advanced Kinder-Gym (Lil’ Flamingos) or Pre-Team (Parakeets)
Lil’ Flamingos (Pink Feather)

Standing tall and proud is the highly sought-after Flamingo! It is a huge accomplishment to reach Lil’ Flamingo status! These little birdies have sprouted their wings and can now fly from the Kinder-Nest, advancing to one hour-long class, that will turn into two one-hour classes when they are ready! These Flamingos will be climbing the rope to 6’ and pulling over on a bar all by themselves! Who wouldn’t feel Proud in Pink as a Lil’ Flamingo?!
Parakeets (Multi-Color)

These Parakeets have worked their tail feathers off to be at the top of the flock, flaunting every color earned in each level! These birds are now soaring and have built up the confidence, strength, endurance, and awareness to be on their own! We are now headed to class two times a week for 90 minutes at a time. We cannot wait to see these Beautiful Birds grow in the Nest at IGN!
