Flame Gymnastics Academy has been a cornerstone for gymnastics
and tumbling instruction since 1985. Founded by Randy "Blu" McMullin,
Flame has been under the ownership and direction of Dan and Laura
Beam since August of 1995. We are a family owned and family oriented
children's fitness facility with multiple programs serving the
greater Fort Smith area.
We strive to instill an attitude in our students that will help
them become physically, mentally and socially well adjusted youngsters.
We want them to learn to deal effectively with challenges, failures
and successes. We want them to accept themselves and others at
face value and help them develop an attitude that a person can
be successful…AND be respectful, polite and a good sport.
Because our student's physical and mental well being are always
top priority, we use a teaching philosophy that places emphasis
on gymnastics skill progressions designed for each classes age
and ability level. At the recreational gymnastics level each child's
success should and is based on achievement toward their personal
goals of gymnastics learning and mastery.
Since 1985 we have taught more than 35,000 students and have grown
to become one of the most successful gymnastics and dance schools
in the nation. As with any "service" oriented business, our success
is based on the quality of service we provide. We continually
strive to improve that level of service and have, year after year,
earned the reputation as providing the best gymnastics and tumbling
instruction for area youth. We feel our professional teaching
staff is without equal combining for more than 400 years of experience
in sport and teaching. We only employ teachers we feel are highly
qualified in teaching their chosen classes.
We have a 24,000 square foot, fully air conditioned facility that
is equipped with the finest apparatus available. We also provide
ample, well-lighted parking, comfortable seating and a pleasant
