Frequently Asked Questions

Where are the classes held?

The classes are located at Sawyer Hall (751 Western College Drive).

Where can I park at Sawyer Hall?

There is parking available near Sawyer. Please see map above for exact location. Contact Abbie Ainslie by email at ainsliar@MiamiOH.edu for a parking pass if you do not have a Miami University pass.

What should participants wear?

Children should wear clothes they can move around in, but not baggy clothes. Leotards for girls are recommended but not required. No jewelry. Long hair should be tied back.

What happens in the case of inclement weather?

In rare instances gymnastics classes and lessons will be canceled. Please call (513) 529-8178 for the latest update on weather cancellations. Participants are not penalized for missing classes and we encourage all parents to use their best judgment when determining whether or not to bring their child in the case of inclement weather.

Can I stay and watch the class or lesson?

We encourage you to stay, however, we ask that those not involved in the program remain in the designated seating area. Only children being supervised by our instructors are permitted to be on equipment. We ask that children not involved in programs be supervised at all times.

How do Private and Semi-Privates work?

Our registration website has a list of instructor availability. A private lesson is for one person, and a semi-private is for two or three people. When registering, only one person will register for the semi-privates, and they are responsible for filling the lesson with one to two other people.

Do you offer multiple child discounts?

Yes. With any purchase of a 12+ week course or pass (private, semi-private, or youth team) all additional 12+ week courses or passes are $20 off. This includes parent/child and preschool programs.
