The Tumble Program classes are solely focused on running and standing tumbling technique. Jumps and stunting technique will not be covered in any Cheer Tumble class.
The Tumble Program is located in the Tumble Gym.
The BEGINNERS class is focused on teaching the correct form, basic strength and the necessary flexibility to effectively perform all introductory tumbling skills. These include learning safe forward and backward rolls, a solid handstand, a proper cartwheel and a powerful round-off. It is within our beginners’ course curriculum; each student is given the imperative fundamentals needed to move onto more advanced tumbling.
The INTERMEDIATE class is focused on furthering student’s ability to powerfully perform both standing and running tumbling. Our intermediate curriculum revolves around the progression of a round-off into a back handspring. Alongside this running tumbling pass, we also focus on each child’s ability to confidently perform their standing
back handspring and work toward multiple back handsprings.
The ADVANCED class is focused on taking their strong standing and running tumbling passes beyond the back handspring and onto the infamous back tuck. It is here, students also develop front and side aerials, front handsprings, and front tucks.
The ELITE class is reserved for advanced tumblers who are ready to begin learning layouts, fulls, double fulls and arabians; as well as tumbling in and out of these progressions. This class is also a vehicle to cultivate creativity for each individual student; this ensures every student is using their unique capabilities and strengths to their advantage.
