About the Provider

Description: Crenshaw was founded in 1949 by Bill and Bee Crenshaw as one of the first private gymnastic studios in the United States. The first tumbling classes were held in the old University Methodist Church. In 1951, they built and moved their gym to 42nd and Burnet Road. In 1976, Art and Gil Elsass purchased the business to continue the tradition of excellence in teaching. Originally started as a part time business, Crenshaw Athletic Club is now a full-time endeavor. In May of 1984, the club made its present move to 5000 Fairview and became one of the most prestigious gymnastics facility in the country. The programs under Gil and Candace Elsass now include Gymnastics, Swimming, Pre-school Education, After School Care, Birthday Parties and an Adult Fitness Center. Crenshaw is also a pioneer in creating a popular program called Palaestra which is a unique combination of academics and athletics for preschoolers.
