Tumbling Classes

Each class in our tumbling program is designed to maximize fun while learning. We encourage all students to reach their full potential at their own pace. Our tumbling classes teach proper progressions using drills, spotting, and equipment to teach floor skills. Classes focus on developing strength, flexibility, coordination, and confidence while learning new and exciting skills. Tumbling prepares athletes for future careers in cheerleading or extra help on floor skills for gymnasts. 
Classes in the tumbling program start at age 5. 


Tiny Tumbling (Ages 5-7)For the young athlete who just want to work floor skills. This is our introductory level tumbling class. In this class, the student focuses on the fundamentals of tumbling. Students are developing a solid understanding of skills and learning basic movements. Focusing on forward rolls, handstands, cartwheels, round offs, and back bends, this class is station based for proper progression teaching. This class runs for 45 minutes and is priced at $50 a month.


Tumbling Level 1 (Ages 8+)This is our introductory level tumbling class. In this class, the student focuses on the fundamentals of tumbling. Students are developing a solid understanding of skills and learning basic movements. We start with forward rolls and work our way through handstands, cartwheels, round offs, back bends, kickovers, through to the back walkovers.
