Baby Bears (Parent & Child): 2-3 years old

Parent Participation Required. An adult accompanies the child while they are in the gym. In an organized yet playful structure, this grown-up and me class is the perfect way to socialize your child, allow them to learn and understand what it means to follow instruction, and, of course, get them moving!  Your child will work on forward, backward rolls, and be introduced to cartwheels.  This is a great class for you and your child to meet new friends and bond with each other.  Class goals include listening skills, fundamental movement, coordination, fine and gross motor skill development, and body awareness.
