Gymnastics classes are something you’ll never regret for your children. They learn balance, coordination, resilience and strength – all while tumbling around and having a whole lot of fun. With a wide range of gymnastics classes available, your children can choose from acrobatics, rhythmic or artistic gymnastics, or even circus skills.

Brisbane has myriad gymnastics classes available but we’ve whittled them down to our six favourites:

Lawnton Academy Of Artistic Gymnastics

If competitive gymnastics are where you think your child is at, Lawnton is a great place to start. It’s been the starter school for a series of Olympians, and has also produced many regional, state, national and international champions in its nine year history.  Lawnton offers challenging, safe and enjoyable programs that inspire all participants of all levels and abilities to reach their full potential.

There’s a great range of classes at Balance, plus they run holiday programs as well. They claim they have “gymnastics fun for everyone” and they come seriously close. From mini monkeys at 18 months of age to teens and even adults flexibility classes, Balance prides itself on the fact it doesn’t train kids to compete at gymnastics, but rather to just enjoy it.

Flipside Circus

Bear with us here: sure, circus isn’t technically gymnastics, but it’s a lot of fun tumbling and spinning and twisting and turning – and it’s sure to keep kids fit and active. Flipside Circus runs classes from 18 months to 17 years, plus an all abilities class so there really is a class for everyone. Plus they offer a free trial so you’ve got nothing to lose.
