The strong academic curriculum at TMS is complimented by the exceptional gymnastic and movement training program that was developed in 1993 by C. Mandelstam and D. Camacho. The many benefits of this program transition into the classroom and beyond. The gymnastic and unique performance related coaching includes leadership and respect. When our students have graduated from grade five, they will have established a foundation of skills and attitudes that will assist them throughout their future.
Training is by Safety Certified Accredited Coaches and experienced Performers using International Standards. During instruction, students are carefully supervised and situated where they will be safely and successfully coached.
