Another round of dance, gymnastics, basketball, karate and rookie sports classes for kids recently started up again at the JCC. The classes, open to preschool and school-age boys and girls, are designed to get kids moving and having fun. The classes run through early March, 2016.

The dance classes offered consist of ballet, jazz and tap for kids ages three through eleven. The focus is on movement, rhythm strength and flexibility while emphasizing fun, creativity and self esteem. The program will conclude with a recital.

The gymnastics classes, for children ages three through fourteen, utilize the bars, beam, floor and vault. Placement in the classes in based on skill, not on age. A comprehensive regimen of instruction helps kids develop agility, flexibility and self confidence. A special sensory gym class is offered for three- to five-year olds, which provides appropriate sensory input for children of all abilities and developmental levels.

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

Some recent additions which debuted this fall are Lil' Kickers Soccer for both pre-K and school-age children as well as the fun fitness classes Cardio Hoops and Movin' & Groovin' Fitness for grades 3-6. These newer classes have quickly become popular favorites.

Enrollment for all classes is open to the community and will continue through the start of each program. JCC membership is not required to enroll, 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.
