Scientists agree that children are our future, which is why most children are sealed in time capsules with a flashlight and a stack of magazines. Give a child something he or she will really dig with today's Groupon: for $29, you get registration and four weeks of gymnastics classes at Ozark Mountain Gymnastics (up to an $85 value).
Lessons are available to aspiring acrobats of all skill levels between 18 months old and 18 years old.
A professional member of USA Gymnastics, Ozark Mountain Gymnastics allows tumbling tykes and high-flying adolescents to realize their gravity-defying dreams with classes taught by USA safety-certified coaches. During the weekly classes, lasting 45 minutes to an hour, somersaulting students practice new skills on the trampoline, balance beam, uneven bars, or floor mats in the gym’s 15,000-square-foot facility. Parents watch over pintsize patrons younger than 3 to keep them from falling down or feeding the gym’s pommel horse, and older kids cartwheel and cavort freely under the supervision of skilled trainers.
On the first two Fridays of every month from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., littluns can caper about and practice their newfound skills during supervised sessions ($5+, not included in this Groupon), giving parents enough time to paint the town red and fight the resulting vandalism charges. The one- to four-hour sessions give moms and dads a respite from parental duties while kids safely enjoy jumping on trampolines or walking along balance beams instead of bouncing on beds and toddling along rooflines.
Ozark Mountain Gymnastics
For more than 20 years, Ozark Mountain Gymnastics has cultivated balance in its students. Though its classes for toddlers to 18-year-olds impart cheering, tumbling, and competitive skills on the physical level, instructors also focus on a healthy equilibrium between mental and visible strength. They emphasize sportsmanship and teamwork, building character traits in their pupils that translate to finesse both on and off the parallel bars. Additionally, they recognize the importance of familial support: parents are welcome to observe classes and always participate in those for children younger than 3.
As a professional member of USA Gymnastics, OMG recruits USA safety- and CPR-certified coaches. In the interest of personalized instruction, its classes typically admit 10 or fewer students, though birthday parties can accommodate up to 15 so kids can switch in and out of the host's human-pyramid throne.
