V.I.P. Gymnastics, Ninja, and Cheer was created out of a dream from a mother, daughter duo who fell in love with the sport. Val Dykstra put her 3 daughters in gymnastics and coached to pay for their tuition. Her daughter, Alisha Dykstra quickly followed in her mother’s footsteps teaching classes, developing curiculum, and training gymnasts from preschool to elite. Both have coached regional and national qualifiers and gymnasts who received full ride scholarships.
The concept of providing gymnastics to kids while they are at daycare preschool was presented and Val started the Superstar Tumblebus. We began with 3 daycares and 60 kids in the program. The program has been a local favorite for over 19 years. We expanded to Sioux Falls and had 4 buses providing gymnastics classes to over 600 kids in the two locations. Currently we provide learning and fun to over 300 students in the Sioux City area. Parents have been begging us for years to provide classes in our own facility and we are ready to answer that plea.
