Redlands Gymnastics Club’s action-packed classes endow children between 18 months and 18 years of age with the interpersonal skills and physical discipline they will need to succeed in school or reality television. Led by enthusiastic coaches, classes meet once or twice a week and range from 45-minute parent-child sessions for tots (3.5 years or younger) to progressively longer and more challenging instruction for older girls and boys. Grade-schoolers can rise to the top of playground politics by mastering the splits in beginners or intermediate classes, and 3- to 5-year-olds can learn fundamental movement patterns in Tumble Tots sessions, also focused on cultivating social skills such as listening and not eating gym socks without the proper condiments. Redlands’s innovative program incorporates music, gymnastics, and dance to promote robust personal development and a positive self-image among its young charges.
