From the time kids can walk, they can take classes at GymQuest. With a wide array of gymnastics, tumbling, and cheer classes for kids all the way up to age 17, there are lessons to meet just about every student's skill set. Boys and girls just starting out in gymnastics can take beginner-level sessions that teach the basics and work their way up to Olympic apparatuses and advanced moves. Students can also work their way up to competing with the gym's AAU and USA Gymnastics teams.
Meanwhile, at DanceQuest, children learn beginning dance moves in a supportive environment, or progress to intermediate and advanced levels with more challenging classes. Students can pick from ballet, jazz, lyrical, hip-hop, and tap. Additionally, the DanceQuest Performing Company culls students from DanceQuest classes with skills and good attendance to join the group in recitals.

Kristin was nervous before her first pole-dancing class. Sure, she’d spent years as a fitness specialist with a background in classical dance, but she was also working as the volunteer director at her church. What would people think? At her first turn around the pole, however, her fears vanished. “I felt like a goddess and an acrobat,” she says.
Today, Kristin is a certified pole instructor, a master trainer for Pole Move, Inc, and a member of the Pole Fitness Association. Inside her 3,400-square-foot studio, she works alongside 16 PFA-certified instructors to teach women body acceptance through pole dancing. More than 3,000 female students so far have sampled the studio's liberating, confidence-boosting classes. There's a broad selection of class types, including eight stages of pole dancing, burlesque, aerobic classes, core conditioning, aerial silks, and aerial yoga. Each class caps attendance at 10 students to ensure instructors know everyone’s name and favorite sandwich, and that they can keep an eye out for safety and technique.
