About the Tumbling Program

Our Tumbling classes are designed to help dancers reach their goals, as well as give them an edge on any future dance endeavors they wish to pursue. It is also a fun way for students to release stress, gain flexibility, and to have fun while learning how to control their body. This is a great class to add for your little gymnast, to help dancers reach the next level, or to simply try a new activity. Our professionally trained instructors use their tools to help each student reach their full athletic potential. The culmination of the student's hard work and training will be presented at our Spring recital and Christmas Show through creative and original choreography. Below are descriptions of our specific class levels:

Tumbling for Tots (Ages 3-5)

Tumbling for Tots is an introductory program that focuses on fundamental body positions and movement skills that encourage body awareness and coordination. The class covers introductory skills such as forward and backward rolls (including straddle), splits, and bridges. Emphasis is placed on individual and team play exercises that allow students to develop social skills, i.e. waiting for a turn and responding to directions.

Tumbling I (Ages 6-8)

Tumbling I is a beginner program that focuses on form and technique in basic running and standing tumbling exercises. The class covers introductory skills such as handstands, cartwheels, and round-offs. Students are trained to develop strength, flexibility, balance, and cardiovascular endurance. Emphasis is placed on routines and drills that encourage positivity, team spirit, and commitment.

Tumbling II (Ages 9-up)

In this Intermediate level program, students will begin to learn more advanced tumbling steps, as well as work on improving their flexibility, strength, and endurance. This class offers training on a variety of skills based on the individual athlete. Our instructor will work with students on perfecting standing back handsprings and connecting round offs with a back handspring, as well as other advanced dance moves such as tilts, scorpions and various leaps.
