    Miss Libby’s Gymnastics –

    Our philosophy for our students is to teach them gymnastics in a fun, safe environment, and enrich their self-esteem.  We believe in a success-oriented program that is in constant motion and shouts FUN.  With our curriculum based on gymnastics and fitness, we can teach the basic physical skills while stimulating little minds to crave more learning and movement. We feel each athlete can reach any goal if surrounded by positive influences and given the proper tools.  Our promise is to be one of those influences!  We will keep our student/teacher ratio low, to ensure effective instruction and security for each child.
    Our program includes lessons on all gymnastics apparatus modified to the special needs of each student.

    Our fully-equipped gym offers balance beam, bars, vault, spring board, Tumble Trak and the only regulation-sized gymnastics spring floor in Sumter.

    We LOVE families and want all the kids to be able to attend their favorite classes at Miss Libby’s school of dance & Gymnastics.

     

    Why gymnastics is great for preschooler’s!

     

    Recreation Class Description:

    Mom, Pop & Tot: Walking – 47 months (45 minutes)
    This class brings the parents onto the floor amidst the excitement in this child directed program.  It’s primarily for fun and parental/child bonding.  Quality time for both is the key.  Music and movement exploration is a major part of the curriculum.  A small student/teacher ratio is kept for personal attention.  Hand/eye coordination and ball handling skills are developed along with small motor development.  It makes for a special time for the family.

    Gymsters 2-3yrs During this 45 minute class, your gymnast will be thrilled as they sing, swing, play games, take turns on special rides, all while developing their sense of accomplishment. Our Gymsters feel splendid about themselves as they learn gymnastics in a constantly changing program with fresh insight and new equipment setups each week!

    Mighty Mites (3-4yrs 45min) With greater independence comes the ability to participate without the parent, and our Mighty Mites are bestowed with positive reinforcement for following directions. Strength, flexibility, and agility are increased, as our teachers introduce gymnastic skills with communication through language geared to build self-esteem and confidence.
