The children’s gymnastics gym at Leo Gym in the Olympic Swimming Center is the first recreational gymnastics gym in the city! With classes geared toward children ages 2-12, the program is based on the American recreational gymnastics system which promotes exercise by having fun and developing life skills, and it’s taught by an American gymnast with 15 years of experience teaching children (who is also fantastic with children). She has three assistant coaches as well, who all speak English and are also really great with kids. If you have kids, you will probably agree that this is just what this city has been waiting for!

They offer one-hour classes weekly for ages 2-12 (Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and open gym times throughout the week. They also offer a combination gymnastics and dance class, and there is an option to join per 6 week term or annually where all open gyms times are free.
Here’s a bit of information from them:
