Gymnastics and Ninja Holiday Programs
Balance Brisbane’s 4-hour Gymnastics and Ninja (parkour, gymnastics & tricking) school holiday program in Yeronga is exciting and fun!
School holiday gymnastics and Ninja program
Balance Brisbane offer an active, physical and fun 4-hour holiday program in both gymnastics and Ninja Gym (Ninja Gym is a combination of Parkour, Gymnastics and Tricking – all the cool stuff the kids want to be able to do!). They have designed the program so that the kids have a great time, and are pretty tired when you collect them – you also get 4 hours to get a few things done without them! You can drop off from 8.30 am and then pick up at 1pm.

Ninja learn to vault
During the first week of the school holidays, Balance Brisbane host a 2 hour learn or enhance your Ninja vaulting skills workshop. Vaulting comprises a number of different styles of jumping over obstacles of varying height. The better you get the higher the obstacle you attempt to vault over.
Sessions are Monday-Friday for the first week of school holidays, from 1:30pm to 3:30pm.
What to wear and bring
Children should wear clothing that is comfortable and easy to move in; either loose or stretchy. Sports shorts and a t-shirt works well. Specific gym or activewear is perfect too. Please make sure there are no sharp or hard bits on the clothing, like heavy metal zips, or metal fastenings or decoration etc., as these can damage your child, other children or the equipment.
Children should also pack a water bottle and a lunch box with enough food for two food breaks. The children can refill water bottles as needed and will have space to eat on chairs or the floor as they prefer.
