Carolina Flipz, a popular gymnastics and cheer studio in Pineville, recently announced that they are expanding a program offering tailor-made classes to children with special needs. A USA Gymnastics Member Club, Carolina Flipz offers year-round gymnastics, cheerleading and tumbling instruction - and now they offer customized classes for students with special needs. All special needs students will be given a free, introductory class to see if gymnastics is a good fit for them.
The classes serve two purposes for owner and coach Angela Davis, who has a passion for helping children who learn differently feel welcome at the studio. Not only do they offer special needs students the opportunity to learn new skills, Davis says “it is especially important to me to have our team kids assist and interact with the special needs students. Research has proven that children who are exposed to people with disabilities — either directly or indirectly — have more positive attitudes about those with special needs.”
