ADVANCED TUMBLING

ADVANCED TUMBLING

Co-ed, 1st Grade & Up
1 hour

Flip-flops are coming your way! At this point, tumblers have gained a better sense of body awareness and are able to use that to start building on the basics they’ve been perfecting. They have a great front roll – now they’ll make it a dive roll. The front walkover is mastered, so they will turn it into a front handspring. Back rolls are no problem, so they become back extension rolls. What comes after learning a perfect back walkover?? That’s right – the highly anticipated flip flop! This is the first time they will start learning the mechanics of taking basic skills to the next level. 

Tumblers must be evaluated to enter this class.
