Another round of fall enrichment classes aimed at getting kids moving and having fun has begun! Most of our dance, gymnastics and sports classes for preschool and school-age boys and girls started the week of September 12, however you can still enroll your child now and we'll prorate the class fee to reflect the time remaining.

“We’re excited to offer another great lineup of classes this fall for kids of all abilities,” said Sherri Lamanna, JCC director of gymnastics, dance and preschool physical education. “We make the classes fun while teaching the children a range of skills and various ‘life’ lessons such as cooperation and teamwork.”

Ballet, jazz and tap dance classes for kids ages three through twelve focus on movement, rhythm strength and flexibility while emphasizing fun, creativity and self esteem. The program will conclude with a recital.

Budding gymnasts from three through fourteen years old with dreams of winning Olympic gold can get started by learning the basics of the bars, beam, floor and vault. Placement in the gymnastics classes in based on skill, not on age. A comprehensive regimen of instruction helps children develop agility, flexibility and self confidence. A special sensory gym class is offered midday on Thursdays for three- to five-year olds, which addresses sensory input for children of all abilities and developmental levels.

Basketball, karate and rookie sports classes are open to children ages three through twelve. Each sport’s specific skills are taught along with teamwork, fair play, sportsmanship and conditioning. The JCC has once again partnered with the CNY Karate School to offer the karate classes.

Enrollment in the program is open to the community and will continue through the start of each class. JCC membership is not required, however members receive a discount. 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.
