On Saturday, March 30, the Wellington Equestrian Gym Club — also known as WelliGym — held its grand opening celebration at 3133 Fortune Way, Suite 4, off Pierson Road in Wellington.
The new local gymnastics and dance studio is owned by Evelina Gracia and Ariel Fontana, who were excited to open their new business, joined by daughters Agostina Fontana-Gracia and Brianna Fontana.
Originally from Argentina, the gym owners were former students of well-known gymnast/silk acrobat Flavio Mendoza, and they are proud to bring this unique sport to Wellington.
Fontana and Gracia moved to the United States in 2007 and have lived in the Wellington area since then. Now, they are excited to share the teachings with a new generation of gymnasts, dancers and acrobats.
Once inside the main lobby, the facility branches into two studios. The left one is meant for gymnastics, while the one on the right is for dance practices.
Activities include artistic, rhythmic, acrobatic, trampolining, tumbling and aerial silk gymnastics classes, as well as Zumba and tango dance classes, mat Pilates and yoga for kids and teens.
