Beginner Tumbling

Instructor(s): Lindsay Egger, Jen Carley

Level: Beginner

EAA's Beginner Tumbling classes are perfect for the aspiring tumbler that needs to learn, develop and perfect fundamental tumbling skills such as handstands, bridges, rolls, cartwheels, walkovers and the ever important round-off.  Students will also learn the basics of a back-handspring.  


The primary goal of these classes is to properly prepare each tumbler for running tumbling passes which require a strong and efficient round-off and to develop the skills necessary for flipping.  Tumblers should expect to train in a Beginner Class until their handstands are stable, their round-offs are clean and powerful, they can execute a back and front walkover, and they can cleanly execute a back-handspring with a spot and over a rolling mat.


Once they reach these milestones tumblers will be advanced to a Back-Handspring or an Intermediate Tumbling Class.


The majority of students requesting a trial class will be required to start in a Beginner Class before being advanced to a higher level class to be tested for the benchmark skills listed above.
