Gymnastics emphasizes conditioning, flexibility, strengthening and internalizing certain basic maneuvers. It is an excellent addition for students of Hip Hop and Break Dance and is very good for children who need to get in shape. At Hamilton Dance Gymnastics encompasses floor work only. Students learn front and back rolls, front and back straddle rolls, cartwheels, round offs, front and back walkovers, handsprings and bridges (back bends.) Classes are divided by ability, not age.
