New Facility Information
All classes for AAG will move to the new facility on Monday November 21st, 2016!!!
674 County Line Rd, Bensenville, IL 60106
Thank you again for your support of our gym throughout the years. We understand that the past several weeks have been both exciting and frustrating with regards to planning, since no one really knew exactly where the new facility is. We wanted to make sure that the wonderful people who were doing construction there weren't interrupted with cars driving around. We understand everyone wants to drive by and see the place, which is fine, however we do ask that you DO NOT enter the building. There is still construction going on inside and we don't want to interrupt them while they work; plus, a construction area isn't the best place to be wandering about. Everyone will be able to see the new facility soon when we open!
And finally, the information everyone has been waiting for...........
674 COUNTY LINE ROAD, BENSENVILLE!!!
We hope everyone else is as excited as we are!! We are still projecting to open mid-September to beginning of October, depending on equipment shipping times. Please let us know if you have any questions!!

WELCOME MS. CARSON!!!
We would like to announce that AAG will be opening a dance program at the new location!
Dance as an art form is classic, timeless, and certainly the basis of many other activities. We will be offering a variety of classes to at least include ballet, jazz, modern, and hip-hop. Construction on the new dance studio will be starting in the next week or so!
Stay tuned for the introduction of the new Dance Program Director!
For our 10th Year Anniversary, we wanted to do something SPECIAL....EXTRAORDINARY....EXCITING!!!!
So.................We have signed a lease on a new building!!!!
We are in the process of finalizing zoning requirements, pulling building permits, etc. We will be posting updates on Facebook, and emailing them out, so that everyone can be a part of the big move!!!
Our plan is to open the new facility in September. It is located less than 5 minutes away from West Leyden. Most classes will move to the new building, however we will still have some of the beginner boys and girls classes at Leyden.
Thank you for all of your support, and we are happy to have you join us on this exciting new journey for AAG!!
