Tumbling

CLOSED for Spring 2019

If you would like to see this class on the schedule for Spring 2019, please add it to our “GDSC Class Requests” Google xcel sheet. If we receive enough requests, an experienced instructor is available and the schedule allows it, we will add it to our Spring 2018 schedule.

Tumbling introduces little ones to basic body and spatial awareness, as well as expose them to the  body shaping and terminology that is used in the tumbling and Acro worlds.  Students will unknowingly  build strength,  self-esteem and courage, all while playing fun games and moving to age-appropriate music.  Our safety-certified instructor has years of preschool gymnastics under her belt, so everything is done with positivity, creativity, imagination and, above-all, safety. Please note: Tumbling is considered a technique class, and therefore, does not typically perform; however, Miss Charlene’s Monday Tumbling class will be in our June Recital.
