For Christmas, my parents gave Emma a membership to The Little Gym and paid for her to take gymnastics, ballet and tap each month. Her time there started out a bit rocky as she would try her teachers and do only what she wanted to do but after putting a few procedures in place she began to do what she was supposed to and really LOVED going to class each week. Her sweet friend from church, Elizabeth, was in the same class with her. She loved getting to spend the extra time with Elizabeth each week.
Their recitals are broken into two parts. The girls do their gymnastics portion on their normal class day (Tue or Thur) during their normal class time and their recital portion consisting of tap and ballet is at a set time on Saturdays.
