Classes for Kids

We offer a variety of gymnastics, dance, sports classes for preschool through school-age children. Classes are designed to get kids moving and having fun! Busing for school-age children attending classes is available from some Syracuse City schools, select private schools, F-M schools and all public schools within the Jamesville-DeWitt School District. Enrollment is open to the community and JCC membership is not required, although enrollment is discounted for members.


Karate, soccer, tennis and mini sports are just a sampling of some of the programs offered at the JCC through the Health, Physical Education & Recreation Department.

The JCC School of Dance

Ballet, Tap, and Jazz form the curriculum of the JCC Dance Program. Girls and boys are invited to participate in this program and gain flexibility, strength, and coordination while having lots of fun. Dance classes are held in the dance aerobic studio, with mirrors, dance bars, and wood flooring. The program includes a recital in June with additional fees for costumes.

The JCC Gymnastics School

The JCC gymnastics school offers a comprehensive regimen of gymnastics instruction. Students develop agility, flexibility, and self-confidence. Classes are taught by Sherri Lamanna. Placement is based on skill, not age.

We take the child who may not be the next Mary Lou Retton, but we make them feel like star.
