Airborne became a reality for the two owners Melanie Ruggiero and Leah Tanquary in September 1994. Starting our own gymnastics program was a dream for us. We wanted to provide a place for all children to experience the beauty of gymnastics, a sport we all loved. Our hope is to serve the community and nurture each and every child to be the best they can be. Whether gymnastics is enjoyed at a recreational level or pursued at the competition level, the benefits of physical, mental, and social interaction can be used in all aspects of the developing child. We hope to share all of the positive experiences and knowledge we have gained through this amazing sport with you and your family for years to come.
Airborne offers a variety of classes for children from crawlers to 17 years old. Airborne offers recreational gymnastics classes for both boys and girls of all ages and abilities to learn the sport. We offer a specialized tumbling and trampoline class for those children wanting to learn specific tumbling skills. Our parkour program is available to children ages 2 ½ and older to experience the new sport of parkour. Airborne also offers adults the opportunity to learn gymnastics through our adult program. (Temporarily suspended). Our competitive girls’ team competes in artistic gymnastics meets throughout the country.
We are not offering in person trials at this time in order to keep stable and consistent groups within our sessions. We are offering free trial classes for our online Airborne Zoom program.
Many of our classes may have a waitlist to enroll. If there is no waitlist for the class, we can enroll your child for the next available start date. If there are no spaces available, students are allowed to be on a maximum of 3 waitlists. We will contact families from the waitlist as space become available.
