Beginner Tumbling Classes: Our Beginner Tumbling classes are offered for kids ages 5 and up who want to learn the fundamentals of tumbling! We know the ultimate goal for a lot of athletes is a back handspring. In order to safely perform this skill, proper and sound fundamentals are absolutely necessary. We will focus on elements that will assist these athletes in safely performing a variety of tumbling skills, even though the actual back handspring will not be main the focus of these classes every week. As with any structure, we believe tumbling is best done when it's built on a strong foundation. We put a high importance on skill integrity at Intrigue and take the time to instill proper basics to make your child's tumbling future more successful (and safe)!
Sample Elements Beginner Tumbling Classes will Focus On:
1. Floor: Forward/backward rolls, handstands, handstand forward rolls, front limbers, front/back walkovers, handstand snap downs, cartwheels, one-armed cartwheels, backbend kick over, front/back handspring drills, and more.
2. Trampoline: A TumblTrak will be used in our Tumbling classes as a training device. We will practice straight/tuck/straddle/pike jumps, jump full turns, seat drops, round-offs, front/back handsprings with a spot, and more. Our Beginner Tumbling classes are 55 minutes long.
* Mobility for all of our Tumbling classes is decided by our instructors’ recommendations. Your child's teacher will let you and our front desk staff know when it's time for your child to move up to the next level! We always want to ensure your child is in a class that will teach and challenge them, and also not be too overwhelming so they are best set up for success! As with all firm structures, the foundations (and tumbling basics) need to be solid and strong in order to continue building. Our Beginner Tumbling classes are 55 minutes long.
Intermediate Tumbling Classes: Athletes in our Intermediate Tumbling classes must have tumbling experience at Intrigue or be tested by an Intrigue staff member to enter into these classes. Kids need to have their back handspring by themself or be very close to safely performing a back handspring by themself, and the same goes for an aerial. Extensions and connections of the skills listed in our Beginner Tumbling classes will be worked on in these classes, as well as continuing to focus on the basics for good tumbling fundamentals! We will work round-off back handsprings and back handspring connections in our Intermediate Tumbling classes, along with other skill connections and the beginning progressions for back tucks. Intermediate Tumbling classes at Intrigue last 55 minutes.
Advanced Tumbling Classes: Athletes in our Advanced Tumbling classes must be able to perform a round-off back handspring series (at least 3) without a spot in order to enter these classes. Also, proper fundamental tumbling elements will be necessary to be in an Advanced Tumbling class at Intrigue. The focus of our Advanced Tumbling classes is to perfect the round-off, back handspring series to a level where back tucks, layouts and twisting elements can be safely added to the tumbling pass. We also work front tucks, aerials, front aerials, and more. Our Advanced Tumbling classes are 55 minutes long.
Elite Tumbling Classes: Athletes in our Elite Tumbling classes must be able to perform a round-off back handspring back layout without a spot in order to enter this class. Students will only be added to these classes based on a coach's invitation. The primary focus of Elite Tumbling at Intrigue is twisting elements (ex: fulls, double fulls, etc). Our Elite Tumbling classes are 55 minutes in duration.
