Beginning Tumbling is for new students who have little or no tumbling experience. Students are introduced to proper body positioning, terminology, and technique. They learn about the muscle groups responsible for each tumbling skill and the role that flexibility, strength, sequencing and timing plays in tumbling. Emphasis is placed on initiating the conditioning requirements needed for intermediate and advanced tumbling. Students will learn forward and backward rolls, handstand, handstand to a bridge, standing backbend to a bridge, and a kick over from a bridge
Students in Intermediate Tumbling refine their basic tumbling skills and increase their strength and flexibility. The back handspring is the cornerstone of cheer tumbling and is a requirement of many cheer teams. One of the primary goals of Intermediate Tumbling is to introduce and master the back handspring.
This is the class where all the hard work pays off! Advanced tumbling is exciting, exhilarating and fun! Advanced Tumbling students work on front tumbling and multiple trick skills and combinations. Students will refine and add to multiple back handsprings, back handspring to a back tuck, back handspring to a layout, and a layout full twist. Students must be able to do a round off to two back handsprings AND a standing back handspring (without a spot) in order to register for this class.
