Program Description:
TUMBLING

Project Dance and TUMBLING’s focus is and will always be on quality!! That is why we couldn’t be
more enthused about the the comprehensive and well thought through tumbling syllabus taught by
experienced and certified staff. This program was inspired not only from years of experience from our
highly qualified staff but also derived from the tested and tried internationally acclaimed Acrobatic Arts
program that focuses also on strength, flexibility, limbering and balance.

 

PD’s tumbling program is a more traditional tumbling program focusing on the basics such as
cartwheels, roundoffs, back and front walkovers, standing back handsprings, roundoff back
handsprings, standing back tucks, side and front aerials and everything in between. Other important
attributes of the program are detail in technique, safety, confidence, flexibility, power skills and
variations of tumbling skills that create artistry. All tumbling will be taught and executed on mats.

 

Project Dance and TUMBLING Program is divided by 5 comprehensive levels: Level 1-5. A brief
description of each level is below to assist when registering. However, a placement audition will take
place the first class in August, which may change a students class time.

 

Level 1- Your student is a first time tumbler. Your student may struggle with either flexibility or strength
or maybe both. They cannot do a solid cartwheel or straight handstand unassisted.

 

Level 2- Your student has a solid cartwheel on their strong side and is working on their weaker side.
Your student can also demonstrate a bridge kickover unassisted, with average technique.

 

Level 3- Your student can do a front and back walkover with average technique and a hurdle
roundoff. Your student is working on an aerial and a standing back handspring.


Level 4- Student can do a side aerial on one side and a standing back handspring unassisted with
average technique.

 

Level 5- Student is working on a front aerial, weaker side aerial, round back handspring, standing
back tuck and a back layout.

 

Project Dance and TUMBLING program has a 6-8 teacher/student ratio ensuring each student
receives a lot of hands on. Project Dance and TUMBLING requires all tumbling students to
participate in a tumbling class twice a week unless you are in the competition program. This will
ensure a safer and quicker progression of desired skills. Students in the tumbling program are
evaluated twice a season to track progression and growth.

 

Day Program
Project Dance offers both morning and early afternoon TUMBLING classes. This program is our
most popular program because we offer dance classes back to back during the day separated by
level and age.

 

Preschool and kindergarten students are separated into two different tumbling classes.
Certified and experienced teachers in our day TUMBLING program love working with younger ages
and are very skilled at class management, safety and positive reinforcement. Students will not only
learn awesome tumbling skills but they will be learning proper form/technique. Students will also
learn to work with others by demonstrating proper class etiquette, how to stay positive and hard work
ethic. Students in this program are evaluated twice a season to track progression and growth.
