Our History

River City Gymnastics Academy was created to provide better quality, more rounded dance and gymnastics training to Brisbane students.


How it all began

There Had to Be A Better Way….

Our founder Heather Lane founded River City Gymnastics after spending hours driving her gymnastics-obsessed daughters to training.

Now operating out of numerous suburban sites, with Head Office in Murarrie, our facility aims to foster a sense of community while providing high-quality training.

“We realised Brisbane students needed a studio that delivers a higher quality of training and genuinely cares about mental and physical wellbeing.” – Heather Lane

2015 – 2023

Rapid Growth

Fuelled by Word of Mouth.

Our studio grew rapidly thanks to amazing feedback from parents and students, and now operates from multiple locations.

Whether you live on the Northside or the Southside of Brisbane we can cater to your gymnastics needs with locations in Ascot, Birkdale, Cleveland and Murarrie.

We agreed from the start that we want our students to have good self-esteem and always be in the best of physical health. Our coaches have a positive training style that encourages a great attitude as well as outstanding technique.” – Heather Lane
