ABOUT - a note from Teri Thompson, founder of SuperKids

It all started in 1983 in Hermosa Beach.  I was teaching Jazzercise, when several moms discovered that I had been a competitive gymnast and a former elementary school teacher.  At their request, I began teaching gymnastics to their young children using the name Tiny Tot Gymnastics, which soon changed to Hippety Heart’s Gym, and then, in 1987, to SuperKids Gym.

SuperKids now operates gymnastics and dance classes in several locations throughout the south bay.  Our  staff includes  former gymnasts,  dancers, and one music man, Mr. Tom Lambert., who has been here since the beginning. 

We hold classes seven days a week and have taught thousands of children their first cartwheel, front roll, handstand, and chasse!

I am so proud of the level of commitment and caring that my instructors embody when working with children. Every day, when teaching the children, they are truly developing the “super” in children.

Welcome, and I sincerely hope you enjoy your experience with SuperKids for many years to come.

Yours in Health and Fitness,

Teri Thompson, Founder of SuperKids
