ABOUT US

The Facility and Program

Dansville Gymnastics is a new, locally owned and operated facility on Main Street in Dansville, NY. DG offers classes for boys and girls ages 2-18 years in gymnastics and tumbling. Classes are designed with organized lesson plans and skill sets to help athletes feel success as they learn and progress. The facility is filled with top of the line, trusted brand equipment, including a custom spring floor, tumbltrak (trampoline), balance beams, bars and vaulting apparatus. The coaches at DG are all highly trained and come from successful backgrounds in athletics, teaching, and child care. 

Parents, friends and family are welcome to stay and watch from our newly renovated viewing area. Or, better yet, grab a cup of coffee, get a pedicure, see a movie, grab a bite to eat or take a knitting lesson in one of our amazing neighboring businesses while your child has a blast in a safe and loved environment!

Coach Sam from Dansville Gymnastics

SAMANTHA GABRIEL
Owner and Head Coach

Samantha began gymnastics as a child here in the village. She competed in competitions both locally and at the state level.

Samantha began coaching gymnastics at the age of 15 to help pay for her gymnastics tuition. She found it to be her passion to not only share the sport in which she has great admiration, but to also watch kids become strong and confident with themselves. She has been coaching gymnastics for over 25 years, to thousands of students, both competitive athletes as well as toddlers and recreational students. Throughout her career she has managed and owned multiple gymnastics programs in New York, California, and Hawaii.

She is excited to bring her experience and expertise back to her hometown where it all began!

Samantha is a gymnastics professional, child development enthusiast, and a mother of two. By bringing those things together in her program she hopes to create a magical space for kids the community to gather and challenge their physical and mental abilities in a safe and fun way! She believes in strong fundamental skills, technique and form. For once those things are achieved, it is easy to move forward safely in a multitude of ways. 

"I am so excited to offer an amazing opportunity for kids in my town of Dansville and neighboring communities! I'm passionate about the foundation that gymnastics provides. I truly believe gymnastics is the basis of all sports and that it provides the strongest building blocks from which kids will grow. You child will gain strength, flexibility, agility, body awareness, coordination, and confidence that will aide them in anything they choose to do!

It is an honor to be able to share my program and create a really fun, safe and family-friendly environment for our kids!

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.

I am genuinely looking forward to meeting you and your family soon."
