Kids ‘monkey’ around in gym

Monkey business Gymnastics Kindercamp kept children ages three to five interested and doing gymnastics for three hours each day last week.

IT SOUNDED like a challenge but the Monkey business Gymnastics Kindercamp kept children ages three to five interested and doing gymnastics for three hours each day last week.

The program, which took place in the Parkside Secondary gym, saw about a dozen kids taking turns on a gymnastics circuit, doing things like jumping on a trampoline, learning how to do a cartwheel, walking backwards on a balance beam to name a few.

Instructor Leah Sieben, with 25 years of coaching experience to kids of all ages, had the children’s attention whether she was explaining how to do a move, why a move wasn’t working for the child, or praising the child for doing something that day that hadn’t been accomplished earlier.
