First In Flight Gymnastics is dedicated to whole-body athletic excellence, which can only be achieved by training in various disciplines. Dance and flexibility are a critical component of gymnastics; in fact, refined ballet techniques are often the small-yet-all-important difference that puts an athlete on top!
Dance teaches correct body placement, strength and flexibility. Coach Nicki Burton teaches these classes.
Nicki has an extensive background in dance; she comes to us with more than 25 years of teaching experience. She started dancing at the age of 3, started teaching at 14, and continued her dance education at Winthrop University and went on to own her own studio. Nicki has spent more than 15 years choreographing dance and pageant routines and even starred in the VH-1 reality TV series, “Little Beauties” — the forerunner to “Toddlers and Tiaras."
