Most athletic clubs are geared toward adults. Not so at Nova Athletic Club, where youngsters rule the sprawling space. Here, children learn team-building skills, discipline, and concentration during an array of classes. Artistic gymnastics builds muscle and boosts balance while inspiring students to express themselves more gracefully. Martial arts instills confidence and respect through the study of Japanese Karate, Kung Fu, and Tae Kwon Do, and Zumba develops coordination as youngsters follow along to dance steps set to energetic Latin rhythms.
In addition to classes, the club also hosts camps with both athletic activities and arts and crafts. It also boasts an afterschool program with homework help, and parties with gym instruction and birthday cake.
