Tumbling Cheer Classes
Kids LOVE to tumble! Tumbling builds strength, power, courage, and confidence! Tumbling classes teach progressive skills on trampoline, tumble trak, floor and rope. Instructors may also introduce other pieces of equipment during class to continue building strength, coordination, flexibility and technique. These classes also provide the best foundation for developing a higher fitness and mental level, which can also transfer to other sports.
Tumbling is an important component of cheerleading, gymnastics, and dance. Strong tumbling skills distinguish an athlete in any of these disciplines and many of our gymnasts, cheerleaders and dancers cross train in tumbling. Tumbling also develops body awareness and balance.
Giant Gymnastics offers beginning, intermediate, and advanced tumbling classes to students 6 years and older. Our tumbling curriculum is based on structured progressions, with an emphasis on safety and progress. We insist on building a strong foundation before moving into big tumbling tricks. We maintain these standards so that our students and families can enjoy the benefits of developing excellent tumbling skills and so that we can keep our training programs safe for our athletes.
