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

Ask about Gem City’s “Family Maximum” policy!
We want as many kids to experience our classes as possible, but understand that enrolling more than one child can add up fast. To help, we set a max cost that a family will pay when enrolling multiple children in classes while not in any of our team programs.
– The family membership is $50, an annual fee each fall session that is pro-rated at the start of the spring and summer sessions.
– The “Family Maximum” for Spring 2020 class tuition is $950. This is the highest cost a family will pay when enrolling multiple children in classes while not in any of our team programs.
– Each child after the first child in one family receives a 10% discount on tuition.
January 3 to May 16 – 19 weeks of classes
June 1 to August 7 – 10 weeks of classes
Start registering for classes on Monday, April 20!
