Gem City offers gymnastics, tumbling, cheer, and kinder gem classes. These can be started as young as 18 months and still enjoyed into adulthood.

Register for classes now!
Enrollment is ongoing if we have openings.

Our classes present an opportunity to learn and gain strength from the chance to make new friends and build self-esteem to the development of motor skills and the many benefits of exercise.

Gem City coaches athletes with a system of progressions to move each athlete toward their full potential. We do this for two reasons: 1) safety and 2) good basic skills are the key to the big fancy skills.

To enroll in classes, simply stop by or call us at 217.224.8491. Not sure which class is right? We can help! Just ask.
