Wright’s 360° Movement Academy Announces May 31st Grand Opening

Wright’s Gymnastics announced it is opening the doors to its new state-of-the-art facility in Grand Park, Wright’s 360° Movement Academy, which will offer programming for children, including traditional gymnastics, ninja, dance and an academic preschool, Kids 360° Early Learning Academy.

Wright’s 360° Movement Academy will host a Member + Media Open House on Thursday, June 9 at 4 p.m. in the new building. Wright’s will welcome special guests to participate in the event. During the event, families are encouraged to visit, play and explore the new facility.

The 35,000 sq ft facility opens May 31st and houses four separate businesses under the Wright’s umbrella designed for toddlers to young adults, including Wright’s Gymnastics and NinjaZone and their corresponding early childhood programs, Sweet Peas gymnastics and Lil’ Ninjas. The expanded building provides space for two brand new programs that are unique to the Westfield location: Studio360° Dance and Kids 360° Early Learning Academy.

Kids 360° Early Learning Academy is a first-of-its-kind preschool for kids ages 3-5, offering an expansive learning environment designed to facilitate optimal learning. The progressive movement-based curriculum primes the brain for learning, improves sensory/motor integration, and helps kids build healthy life skills. 1,000 sq. ft. classrooms extend both outdoors and into the 35,000 sq. ft. indoor gym. Enrollment is now open for Fall 2022.

Studio360° Dance is a unique dance program joining the Wright’s brand at the new Westfield location. The program offers dance to kids of all ages in the styles of ballet, tap, jazz and hip-hop. Classes that blend dance and gymnastics movement are also offered to complement students who are training in any style.

“We are thrilled to welcome families inside the new facility,” said Wright’s Owner, Casey Wright. “We are excited to debut our new academic preschool and dance programs that will help even more kids grow their confidence and passion for movement.”

Founded as Wright’s American Gymnastics in 1975 by Bob and Dana Wright, Wright’s was purchased by their daughter, Casey Wright in 2005 and now aims to arm kids with foundations of movement and coordination for life by providing fundamental physical and mental development for the whole child. Wright’s owns and operates six gymnastics gyms across Indiana, as well as developed the first ninja gymnastics program in the country in 2015, NinjaZone, which has grown to a globally-recognized company and has licensed more than 300 programs around the world.

Studio360° Dance and Kids 360° Early Learning Academy, new ventures for Wright’s, will allow for expanded offerings to children of all ages, abilities and skill levels. Casey Wright has been named Small Business Person of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration, recognized by the Indianapolis Business Journal on its Forty Under 40 list, and has been featured in numerous publications and podcasts for her leadership in the industry.
