As a comprehensive gymnastics training center and a USA Gymnastics club member, Carolina Stars Gymnastics takes its tumbling seriously. Kids as young as 18 months can start on the path toward somersaults, roundabouts, and backflips in fun and engaging parent-and-tot classes. Meanwhile, boys and girls of all ages and abilities can find a class perfectly suited for them. In addition to gymnastics, the training center offers karate classes, aerial dance lessons, and birthday parties.
Carolina Dance Capital is a family affair. Husband and wife duo Fritz and Annette Schulte own the studio along with their daughter, Nina, who serves as artistic director. The rest of the staff includes eight regular dance instructors and more than 15 guest teachers and choreographers. In a variety of classes, they help students as young as two and as old as whatever to get fit and express themselves through ballet, jazz, tap, yoga, and Zumba.
Class sizes are kept small to encourage close personal attention and a supportive atmosphere. Six studios occupy the 8,700 square foot facility, and each is outfitted with observation windows, spring-loaded floors to prevent injury, and Super Soakers to facilitate Gene Kelly impressions. In addition to classes, pupils of all abilities can partake in cheer camps, workshops, and competitive dance teams. A waiting area for parents is equipped with complimentary WiFi.
When Joan Barnes founded Gymboree Play & Music in 1976, she envisioned a facility where parents and children could play together in a safe and age-appropriate environment. In the following decades, Gymboree Play & Music spread to more than 30 countries across the globe, helping youngsters from infants to 5 years old develop cognitive, physical, and social skills. The company's instructors lead classes such as Play & Learn, its flagship course, in which parents and kids move through a seven-level program filled with storytelling, play activities, and debates on the merits of sandwich crust. Talented staffers also prep youngsters for school and foster development in areas such as music, art, and sports. Throughout all classes, they make use of custom play equipment designed by acclaimed playground designer and seesaw-tamer Jay Beck.
All Star Gymnastics helps kids as young as two build their motor skills in a safe and friendly environment. Trampolines and vaulting boards bounce students through the air and cushioned mats protect them as they dismount from high bars and balance beams. The gym also hosts birthday parties and day camps, where gymnastics makes for a fun pairing with the likes of arts, crafts, and games.
Welcome to Salem! Our goal is to offer the finest children’s programming in the area, making your child’s time at Salem not only be the highlight of their growing years, but the foundation for a lifetime of healthy living!
