Newton to offer gymnastics classes

NEWTON, N.C. – The Newton Parks and Recreation Department will offer gymnastics classes for children in June.

Classes will be held from 5:30-6:15 p.m. and 6:15-7p.m. on June 3, 10, 17 and 24. Classes cost $40 per month, and discounts are available for multiple children from the same family.

Instructor Jeff Brock has more than 30 years of teaching experience specializing in recreational, preschool and tumbling classes. The curriculum will include core gymnastics skills, as well as strength and flexibility training. Class size is limited for individualized attention.

Gymnastics is a great physical activity for children. Its benefits include increased confidence, coordination, strength, balance and flexibility. As children progressively master new and more challenging skills, their self-esteem often rises.
