Where Confidence Soars! 

We are OPEN regular schedule on this slightly wintery Wednesday!

Our goal is to offer the finest children’s programming in the area, making your child’s time at Salem not only the highlight of their growing years, but the foundation for a lifetime of healthy living! Since 1980 Salem has taught the joys of gymnastics to thousands of children. Over the years, we have added new programs such as martial arts and swimming, always with the goal of growing healthy, active, confident children through movement.

Visit us today and see for yourself why our former students are now bringing their own children to Salem.
