Your Local Gymnastics Center
Dakota Gymnastics Academy (DGA), Winnipeg, shares the same mission as Gymnastics Canada, which sets the standards and guidelines for gymnastics in Canada.
We strive to offer a wide range of positive and enjoyable gymnastics experiences while prioritizing safety and quality programming.
