Feet appear to hover above the hardwood floor, quickly darting left and right and lunging forward in a complicated dance. But this is no ballroom lesson?these are fencing classes at Suffolk Fencing Academy. Students of all ages perform their cutthroat choreography during lessons that teach proper footwork, technique, and strategy. After progressing through the academy's multiple programs, students can take their skills to the next level with competitive weapon training, or private lessons that teach how to carve your name with your sword.

Q&A with Deborah Kalab, Director & Owner

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!
