Benefits of Joining Dardano's Gym

1

Self Confidence

Kids learn self confidence at Dardano’s. No matter how far they go in the sport we encourage each child to focus on their individual growth and personal achievements. We teach kids first and we teach athletes second. Being proud of who they are and what they are becoming is more important than any awards. And knowing they can learn and accomplish things just by putting in the work is what will make them a successful human being.

2

Independence

Doing gymnastics at Dardano’s teaches kids independence. Facing our fears and overcoming them is an important part of life. Thousands of kids have been through our program, many since they first started walking, and they have gone on to lead successful lives. To this day many point to their time at Dardano’s as having the biggest impact on their childhood and their success today as independent adults.

Multi-Sport Fundamentals

Gymnastics is a fundamental sport that teaches body awareness and the ability to move properly. At Dardano’s we give our students the foundational skills they need to be successful in any sport that they may move on to. Whether that’s diving, football, or motocross, gymnastics will play a central role in your athlete's career.

Our History

Larry Dardano was a gymnast at North Denver High School in the 1960's. He earned a gymnastics scholarship to attend Colorado State University. After graduating, he came back to North Denver High School as a science teacher and also coached football and gymnastics.

After North High School ended its gymnastics program in 1983, Larry decided to realize his lifelong dream and open a gymnastics school in the Park Hill neighborhood. He was able to purchase an old shopping center and completely renovated the space to be able to accommodate a full gymnastics program for both boys and girls.

Two of his three daughters, Gina and Donyella, grew up in this gym. Today, Gina is the program director and oversees the day-to-day operations of the entire facility. Here at Dardano’s, gymnastics is our family legacy and we take pride in what we do. We strive to create a fun, safe, positive environment where your child can thrive not only as an athlete but also as an individual.

My son loves this place and so do I! He has grown so much since he started here 6 months ago. I love seeing his confidence grow. There's a really nice community atmosphere between all the parents while watching their kids, they've become friends.

I am an adult and taking private lessons there. Scott is a great coach, I was doing Acrobatics/Gymnastics very quickly on my own. I will continue to go there.
