X-Cel's tumbling program - comprised of Intermediate Tumbling, Back Handspring Series and Advanced Tumbling classes - was designed for students who prefer not to use all-around gymnastics equipment.  These tumbling classes specifically aim for developing tumbling skills on the trampoline and the floor. They could also be great as second classes during the week to get extra floor time to obtain additional tumbling skills or to perfect the tumbling skills being learned in other classes during the week.
