What sets your business apart from your competition?
Our Philosophy is that all children should be able to learn gymnastics in a non-Competitive atmosphere. Our classes are geared toward specific age groups, and we work with each child individually in a fun-filled program. Our instructors guide children of all Physical capabilities.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
I was a competitive gymnast for many years and that is not for every child?partly because of the long grueling hours in the gym. I came up with the concept of children learning gymnastics to the best of their ability to gain strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination regardless of their athleticism. These four basics build self confidence for life.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
The staff at the gym are all past students who have grown to love the sport of gymnastics. My staff is dedicated to making every child's dream of learning how to do a cartwheel come true. The manager at the gym has been with us since we opened and is very dedicated to making our families happy.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
_ We have many awesome reactions from the children everyday as they learn each new skill, but our best reaction is when our students grow up and bring their own children._
What?s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part of my job is when I see a child smile as they learn. There is nothing like a smile on a little one's face to make for a great day!

When she was 15, Heather had already been dancing for a decade, and she vowed to one day open her own studio. Later, while in school for interior design, she took her first-ever pole-dancing class and found it was love at first twirl; she installed a pole in her own home that very afternoon. Though she worked for a while as a professional designer, she felt compelled to step away from decorating other people's homes to pursue her teenage dream, swathing her newly opened studio space in hot-pink paint and floor-to-ceiling mirrors. Today, it's a go-to hub for novice dancers of all ages, sizes, and experience levels and for barber's poles looking to switch careers. While Heather and three other instructors teach belly dance, aerial technique, burlesque, and fitness classes, though Heather's main passion still lies with pole dancing. She finds it rewarding to watch as students—who currently include spinners in their 60s—break past mental blocks to do moves they never thought possible. She grins each time her students report that they're feeling stronger and healthier just doing everyday tasks, like buying anvils at the grocery store. "I don't feel like it's a job," she says, noting the supportive environment created by her students and the joyous bachelorette and birthday parties—where, she maintains, the older guests always turn out to be wilder than the 20-somethings. "It feels like I'm hanging out with friends."
