ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Tumblin' Tigers LLC is a mobile gymnastics organization. We teach classes in daycares, preschools, and after school programs. We dedicate ourselves to providing the highest quality gymnastics instruction in a safe and enjoyable environment. Students' safety is our highest concern. Classes are set up in a circuit of stations with new equipment each week. This helps to encourage constant movement and development. Students will receive individualized training, and skills are taught in progression-- which means success in every class!! Classes are uniquely tailored to fit all ages (16 months to 10 years old).
Each month a new and exciting theme is introduced, allowing students to engage their imaginations during class. Themes Include: Dinosaurs Can Do Gymnastics Too, Let's Get Healthy, On the Farm, Dr. Suess, Let's Go Camping, At the Beach, Healthy Eating, Fire Safety, and MORE!
We work to improve our students' self-esteem, strength, coordination, flexibility, balance, spatial awareness, and fine & gross motor skills, all while developing their basic gymnastics skill!
