Head over Heels Athletic Arts
About the Organization
Head over Heels provides recreational, competitive, and special needs gymnastics and dance training to approximately 1,500 students from 12 months to adults. Every week they provide the physical education for 3 local preschools, on-site after school programs for a growing number of primary schools, and field trips for numerous schools and recreation programs throughout the Bay Area.
Through their work with students of all ages, Head over Heels knows that people can and should be constantly learning. For younger students, gymnastics is a a great staring point for all forms of athletics. Those who learn to be physically active at a young age are much more likely to continue later in life.
Head over Heels understands the correlation between being physically active and the development of strong brain function. It’s proven that maintaining one’s physical strength leads to greater mental clarity and supports an individual’s self esteem.
