Salt ash is set to get its own all ages Gymnastic classes starting 30 January.
The classes will be held at Salt Ash Community Hall, Michael Drive and are open to residents from age four through to adults.
Taking place on Wednesdays, the four to six-year-old program will be from 3.15-4pm, five to 12-year-old program from 4-5pm and adult classes from 6 to 7.30pm.
Owner and operator of the classes Samantha Nicholls is currently updating her qualification to an advanced Women’s Artistic Gymnastics accreditation, with the programs being fully insured through Gymnastics Australia.
Samantha told News of the Area: “Past conversations with people in the community were that there isn’t much to do in the area and they would have to travel from the Bay to either Raymond Terrace, Newcastle or Maitland to get what they need, so I thought I will come to them!”
“Our Junior Rec and Rec gym classes are focused on building the foundation skills for gymnastics such as handstands, cartwheels and other skills on beam and bars, with our Adult Gym classes tailormade to suit individual skill ability.”
Samantha has 15 years’ experience in the industry, starting her journey with Gymnastics 21 in 2016.
Due to such high demand, Salt Ash is one of three new locations she is expanding to in 2017.
“Whether you’re an experienced gymnast or a beginner, this program will work for you.”
“Let me share my passion with you,” Samantha said.
