The Tumble and Tramp program is designed for students who prefer not to use the bars, beam and vault! We have developed a series of classes specifically aimed for developing skills on the trampoline and the floor. It is a great second class during the week to get extra time to obtain additional tumbling skills or to perfect the skills learned in other classes during the week. Because of the specific skills taught in this class, it is a great addition for the active cheerleader.
