Horizon Gymnastics & Dance Academy, established 1984


We are closed until the end of the month

Dear Horizon Families,

It is with a heavy heart and much thought and that Horizon has decided to follow the recommendations to follow the CDC guidelines and suspend our classes and practices until the end of the month. We appreciate your support during this difficult time and want you to know we feel at this time it is in the best interest of our students and staff.

You are the most important thing to us, and we want you to know we will be up and running as soon as we can. We will continue to communicate with parents and athletes via emails, Facebook and text messages. Although we will not be able to hold practices physically we will be connecting with our families on a regular basis.

If you are not currently connected to us on our Facebook page, please make sure to check it out for videos for keeping your little gymnasts and dancers busy with stretching and fun physical workouts to follow along with. I will be posting to our website and our facebook page.

We want to continue to stay connected and offer gymnastics and dance in a new way. We can continue to learn and stay busy in this way and help the kids stay active and feel a part of the gym during this time of uncertainty.

All classes, clinics and team practices that were scheduled for today, March 17th will be cancelled as of 12:30 pm.

We are looking forward to our re-opening and being able to tumble with you again soon.

May we find love and support for each other during this time. I am sure we can beat this together!

Welcome to Horizon Gymnastics & Dance Academy,

Horizon Gymnastics & Dance Academy is a strong believer of the Positive Coaching Alliance. We strive to follow their ideals and teach with the focus of developing the athlete as a person and create success from within first.

A positive approach gets the most from youth and high school athletes, which is what coaches, parents and the athletes themselves want. Staying positive also helps youth get the most out of sports.

Encouraging athletes with positive reinforcement helps them hear and heed the necessary corrections. With that winning combination of truthful, specific praise and constructive criticism, athletic performance improves and so do the chances that kids stick with sports longer and learn all the valuable life lessons inherently available through organized competition.

My Two children have been team members at Horizon Gymnastics since 2012. Practices are consistent the athletes stay busy learning new skills while having fun! Horizon's coaches have been there for my young athletes, pushing them to set and achieve goals, while rejoicing along side them as they succeed. Horizon has truly become a second family. We couldn't be happier with our initial decision enrolling our children at Horizon Gymnastics!!

"Callie started your Tumble Tots class last month and LOVES it.

 I had caught this picture of pure joy on Callies face because she "finally did the flip and didn't let go of the rings".
Miss Charlotte is amazing! Thank you! "
