Hello everyone!


My name is Jen Evan and I am thrilled to be working here at Next Dimension Gymnastics. Gymnastics has been a passion of mine since I was very young. Although initially I began the sport on a recreational level, I quickly developed into a competitive club and High

School gymnast.


After leaving the sport for a brief time I returned, this time as a teacher and coach and I have been doing such ever since. To date, I have accumulated over 20 years of teaching experience.


Since beginning here at Next Dimension, I have been utilized in all areas of their program and I look forward to meeting and working with all of you. Look for me teaching in the Stars and Dimensions programs, teaching birthday parties and coaching team.
