Our Purple class comes after our Blue level, and is also a one hour class. By Purple our students are learning the importance of perserverance and dedication to a goal. While they will work on many of the same skills as in our Blue class they will also begin working some more advanced skills including backbend kickovers, back hip circles and front hip circles as well as more advanced tricks on beam, such as handstands and cartwheels (guided by their instructor). A typical class format may look like this:
Warmup- Children will run, do jumping jacks, or some other warm up to raise the heart rate
Group Stretch- The children will stretch together as a group
Events- Children will be broken into smaller groups to go to each event (bars, beam, floor & vault)
*In order to move to our next level (Red) your gymnast must demonstrate a mastery of their backben kickover on floor and their pullover and backhip circle on bars.
