My name is Tanya. I took over Flipflop Gymnastics many years ago. I have a love for children and Sports. I was a Junior Springbok Gymnast and I believe it is important for children to learn while having fun. Teaching children is my passion and I love to see their improvment once they have started taking part in the Flipflop Gymnastics programme. Our past pupils have made great achievments later in life. Teach your little ones to always reach for the stars and believe in themselves and their abilities.

Ronel Palmer

Hi! My name is Ronel Palmer. For as long as I can remember, my passion has been learning about ways to enrich a child’s growth and development. I believe that children need a way to learn through play while having loads of fun! For me - it’s the most rewarding job in the world - knowing that I’ve made a positive impact in the life of a child. Whether it’s improving their gross motor and fine motor skills, their coordination, teaching them good body awareness or helping them to concentrate and focus. Knowing that I have been able to give them the head start they need to become successful one day, puts a smile on my face every day.
