Helmed by athletes and coaches Annie Baker and Jennifer Pero, Dream Xtreme Gymnastics immerses budding child and adult gymnasts in varied gymnastics instruction that boosts self-esteem. Instructors guide students at ten levels: parent-assisted learning for the youngest students and beginner through advanced classes to teach gymnastics positions, maneuvers, and flexibility-building techniques to older students. They also coach a competitive gymnastics team, where each petite athlete is trained toward individual goals, such as competing in college or at the USA Gymnastics National level. Whether training or visiting for open-play sessions, tiny guests exercise on the facility's low balance beams, low bars, and mine for evidence of lost teddy bear civilizations in the foam pit. Staff members can also host fully catered birthday parties, during which they coordinate food service, full setup and cleanup, and construct obstacle courses and coordinate games.
