COMPETITIVE GYMNASTICS

The Byrd's Gymnastics Team is a part of a USA Gymnastics Member Club. Becoming a member of a competitive gymnastics team requires a strong commitment of both the gymnast and the parent. A commitment to year round training is essential for your gymnast to reach their full potential in our competitive program. Competitive gymnastics is a highly rewarding sport that develops and enhances discipline, responsibility, goals setting, time-management skills, and confidence. The physical and mental benefits will be carried with your child throughout their life.

Competitive Dance 

The benefits of being part of a dance team reach far beyond learning to dance. Dancers build lifelong friendships on the solid foundation of their many hours spent learning dance and socializing together. They learn the value of teamwork, to trust in each other, to depend on one another and be a reliable person themselves. These important lessons will carry them on any path they choose to take in life. Fostering leadership development and offering dancers fun and exciting opportunities results in creating confident and self-assured individuals and making memories together that will last a lifetime.
