While we group students by age to foster peer development and social skills, our instructors are trained to teach a wide range of skills. This creates a learning environment that builds social, emotional, physical and mental growth.

Parent Coaching (ages 6 months - 3 years)

Get started early! Dynamite's baby and toddler classes are designed to foster a love of movement from the beginning while equipping parents with the skills and confidence to hand spot their children. Parents guide their children through obstacle courses while supporting their children as they develop gross motor coordination, strength and self-esteem. 

CLASS INFO: Mini Sparklers (6mos - 3yrs), 30 minutes, $45 for 5-visit punchcard or $10/child for drop-ins. Register in person. 10:1 student/instructor ratio. Sparklers (18 mos - 3 yrs), 45 minutes, $100/month. 6:1 student/instructor ratio.

PRESCHOOL gymnastics (ages 3 - 5 years)

We all know that gymnastics is a great way to develop physically, but it is also well-documented that it helps preschoolers prepare for school. Learning how to wait, take turns, listen, and develop friendships are critical to kindergarten success. Our classes focus on building social skills in addition to building strength, dexterity and gymnastics skills. 

CLASS INFO: Poppers (3 - 4yrs), Firecrackers (4 - 5yrs), and Mini TNT (3 - 5yrs) are all coed. 6:1 student/teacher ratio, 45-minute classes, $100/month.

KIDS (5 - 7 YEARS)

At 5 years old, children begin to prefer same-gendered children, enjoy more challenging activities, and tend to be more aware of their connections with their peers and teachers. Understanding these changes, Dynamite provides the choice to graduate from the preschool area and move to the intermediate and Olympic-level equipment; this means thinner beams, higher bars, and bouncier trampolines. Our instructors have a wide range of personalities, so every child can find the perfect match. 

CLASS INFO: GymFusion (blend of Artistic and TNT) and Trampoline & Tumbling (TNT) classes are coed, Snaps (Artistic Gymnastics) is typically for girls only. 8:1 student/teacher ratio. 60-minute classes, $120/month. 

(Classes may be combined with 7-10 age group based on enrollment)

kids (7 - 10)

By the age of 7, children become much more aware of their physical abilities and the opinions of their peers. To address these developments, Dynamite instructors teach more than just gymnastics--they teach kindness and cooperation. While learning skills, students are encouraged to applaud their peers' accomplishments, and work together to move blocks and play strength games. Higher beams and bars help kids overcome fear and feel accomplished. (Classes may be combined with 7-10 age group based on enrollment)

CLASS INFO: GymFusion (blend of Artistic and TNT) and Trampoline & Tumbling (TNT) classes are coed. 60-minute classes, $120/month. Rockets (Artistic Gymnastics) is typically for girls only, 90-minutes, $140/month. 8:1 student/teacher ratio. 

(Classes may be combined with 5 - 7 age group based on enrollment)

TWEENS & TEENS (10 - 17)

Middle and high school students are acutely aware of their physique and friendships. At Dynamite, we welcome teens and tweens to have fun and stay active while building positive, supportive friendships. Our experienced instructors serve as role models as they teach students to work together and support one another. 

CLASS INFO: Trampoline & Tumbling (TNT) classes are coed, Rockets (Artistic Gymnastics) and Tumbling for Cheer & Dance are typically for girls only. 8:1 student/teacher ratio. 90-minute classes, $140/month.

adults (18+)

You are never too old to learn gymnastics or get back into the groove! As a sport of progressions, starting with a forward roll can lead to a front flip, while former gymnasts can see what they can still do. Our experienced coaches and training equipment will help you meet your gymnastics goals. Prefer trampoline? Develop air awareness and coordination as you learn fundamental skills. Give it a try!

CLASS INFO: 10:1 student/teacher ratio. 60-minute class, $130/month.

class programs

 

Dynamite offers a variety of class programs to provide multiple avenues to grow and thrive. Our preschool program combines gymnastics with developmental movement, although at 3 years old, gymnasts can specialize in TNT. At the age of 5, students choose whether to specialize in Artistic gymnastics, TNT, or GymFusion. At 10, girls may join Tumbling for Cheer & Dance.

Billing & payment info

tuition, trials, drop-ins, make-ups

20161025_163902.jpg

MONTHLY TUITION

To make life easier, we offer online payments and automatic billing. Once registered, our system pro-rates tuition based on the number of remaining classes that month; then, every month, our system automatically charges your account on the 1st. If you enroll after the last class of any given month, the system will charge you for the future month (and you will not be billed on the 1st). Be sure to set a drop date for every class; otherwise, you will continue to be billed each month.

Be aware that your child is taking up a spot that another child could have, so refunds are not granted. Phone calls to the gym are NOT accepted as proof of unenrollment. If you need assistance setting your end date, please send an email to hello@dynamitegc.com at least 48 hours prior to the end date you are requesting and include END DATE REQUEST in the subject field. If you send an email request at least 48 hours prior and we do not set your end date, we will happily provide a refund for any erroneous charges incurred. 

Trials & drop-ins

Similar to ongoing classes, trials and drop-ins can be set up online via the Parent Portal. Requests for trials and drop-ins must be approved as we do not run classes in which no other students are enrolled or when we know students will not be attending that day. Please be sure you receive an email confirmation before you show up. If you have questions about your request, please call 301.770.2700.

After you set up the class, please contact the gym to process your payment to complete the registration. 

If you need to cancel the trial or drop-in, please email hello@dynamitegc.com at least 48 hours prior to the class. Phone calls will not be accepted. Trials and drop-ins take up spots in classes and the likelihood of filling that spot diminishes with time. Dynamite does NOT provide refunds for trials or makeups cancelled within 48 hours of class. In emergency situations and on a case-by-case basis, we may reschedule your trial or provide a credit. 

 


Make-ups

At Dynamite, we offer unlimited make-ups, so long as the student remains enrolled. All we ask is that you let us know so we can free up that spot for other make-ups, and don't forget that no-shows or cancellations within 48 hours of the scheduled make-up (for classes, camp, or events) are counted as attended.
