Miss Claudia and Mr. John are a husband and wife team who have been teaching gymnastics since 1996. They are both Safety Certified by USA Gymnastics, the governing body of gymnastics in the United States. Miss Claudia has taught gymnastics at Beginnings for over eight years. In her classes she works on skills using balance beams, the bar, vaults and mini trampoline. Claudia incorporates fun activities such as the parachute, balloons, bubbles, and songs to teach the basics of the sport. The children have fun as they gain self confidence, learn safe landings and falling skills, tumbling agility and overcoming failure. All of this helps make children better athletes over all.
