Hi all. I can't decide if I'd rather my daughter, 6,be competitive in dance or gymnastics. She has tried both at our previous residence but after moving here the options aren't what I would expect. Any help deciding!

I had to make that same choice. Bhozi's is an excellent gym with great instructors. I wasn't impressed at all with the dance studios Waste of time and money in my opinion. Go with gymnastics.

For dance try elite or If you are willing to drive try Yvonne dekay in ironton. As far as gymnastics, my first choice would be tumble world In Chesapeake or river cities in hurricane.

Tumble world and river cities only compete in cheerleading. The only competitive gymnastics team is at bozhis. Highly reccomended.one owner competed in the 86 Olympics. If you want her to be pushed and be good, that's your place!

As a mother of a competitive gymnast moving here from Florida was a nightmare. The local gym isn't ran like any good gym I've been to and we've attended many due to my husbands job. I say stick to dance. You'll be happier and so will your daughter.

We started the new gym AMP about a month ago and it's amazing and it a great location. They also have a really cute dance studio and they are running dance classes too now so you have both options.. The coaches are amazing and my daughter loves them!! This is the third place we have been to and it is definitely the biggest and the best one for us… We love it!

For Dance, I would highly recommend Ashland Regional Dance Theatre in Kentucky. Call and speak to the owner, Maria Whaley. She was a teacher there when I was a child and is still amazing. Very serious, but still fun. Studio is run very professionally.

One of my daughters dances and we had her at elite before which was a great studio but now she is at Bridget's dance academy and she has never been happier! My other daughter just got moved up to the competitive gymnastics team at AMP! She loves it and we think she found love with gymnastics. They were also very reat with us examining everything to us and helping us understand everything involved with doing competitive gymnastics. So I would vote Bridget's for dance and AMP for gymnastics. Oh and as for AMP's dance, they do have a studio but they aren't running a lot of classes through it yet, but thy have plans for the fall I think.

How bout math or science camp? That will probably make her more functional on the global scale. But that's just me

If you really care about your child please don't make them do dance. Only gay people dance. Give it a guitar and put it on the corner with a cup and a sign.

I have to agree with the post above. I use to be a gymnast. My body constantly hurts. I'm not even 30 and already have arthritis and my joints are weak from it. If you put her in either... make for sure she likes it before you start her in competitive because it's costly. Remember she is only 6.. it takes hard work, dedication and a love for either!

I tried my daughter in both. She loves gymnastics, but not dance. I let her make the decision. She goes to Bozhi's and it's wonderful. They do have an instructor that's been in the Olympics. Plus, they had a student win a national gold medal a few years ago.
