Dawson Gymnastics

Gymnastics is a wonderful way to encourage motor development, coordination, and physical fitness for children of all ages. The Recreation Ministry of Dawson Memorial Baptist Church has partnered with Christian Gymnastics and Cheerleading Academy to offer a year-long program for children ages two through sixth grade. All classes meet on Dawson's campus in the Ballet Studio of the Family Recreation Center. Classes are taught under the direction of Jennifer Lay, Leslie McDonald, and Kristina Fortney of Christian Gymnastics and Cheerleading Academy.
