At Mankato Area Gymnastics School our mission is to build strong bodies and strong minds by providing a safe, fun learning enviornment for every child to be successful! We belive the simple joy of running, jumping, cartwheeling and flipping throughout childhood builds physical confidence and the body awarenes needed to pursue any athletic adventure!
