45 minute Tumbling Class
Provides acrobatic mat work and focuses on strength and flexibility. Please note: Classes are determined by skill level and not age. Recital performance for advanced classes only. This is to lengthen the time that beginner and intermediate classes can learn new tricks and work on skills they have yet to master. Recital routines use skills they are already able to execute and prevents the students from continuing their training in the winter and spring months. Students will learn more and advance quicker with the extra months of training.
