We started with a parent/tot class years ago with our oldest and we had so much fun we have never left! Since then we have been found at TNT nearly every week in rec classes, open gyms and birthday parties! The kids love their friendly teachers, dancing during warm up and all the activities at each station. And us parents love the understanding instruction, our kids learning about listening and waiting their turn all while they are being active! We appreciate what TNT stands for in their mission and they really stand by it!
