Tumbling is a class that teaches physical activities without equipment and can also be referred to as, floor gymnastics. Tumbling classes teach the student flexibility, strength and stamina. We focus on form and technique while practicing strength and safety. Tumbling classes can help the student prepare for cheerleading tryouts or the soccer player that makes a goal and wants to do a flip to celebrate! There is also a back handspring pass technique in soccer that children wish to master. Tumbling classes are very beneficial to the dancer for back strength, core and flexibility to master certain tricks performed in jazz, contemporary and lyrical routines.
This class is designed to introduce basic tumbling skills such as, backbends, cartwheel, round-offs, handstand and rolls, while also building their motor skills, confidence, and strength. The class is taught utilizing floor mats only, bands and yoga blocks for stretching and a roll out balance beam for developing their balance skills. We offer your child an introduction of the basics of tumbling that are necessary for development and growth in dance, cheerleading, gymnastics, and overall fitness.
