Gymnastics, Tumbling, Kinder Gem, & Cheer

Gem City offers gymnastics, tumbling, cheer, kinder gem, and parkour classes, which 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.

 Ask about Gem City’s “Family Maximum” policy! We want as many kids to experience our classes, 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.

Please Note:

  • The annual family membership is $32 (if not paid during the fall session).
  • The “Family Maximum” for Spring 2019 class tuition is $864. 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.
