Recreational tumbling is for athletes typically 4 years of age and older who are only interested in the floor components of our gymnastics classes. These classes will not be seen on bars, beam, or vault, but focus only on the skills used for cheer, dance, etc.
If your child is under 4, we do offer a tumbling class at Above the Barre Dance Academy next door:
Toddler Tumbling: 30 MINUTES. one time per week for kids 18-36months old
Boys and girls will burn some energy by learning tumbling, singing and moving, and some fun obstacle courses as well. This is a wonderful class on its own OR in addition to any of our dance or gymnastics classes!
located next door at Above the Barre Dance Academy
We have several classes available for our tumblers:
TUMBLING- MINI: 45 MINUTES. 4-5 YEARS OLD
Your tumbler is ready to be a MINI if he/she is able to be without mom or dad for 45min, follow directions and retain info from week to week. We will be working on jumps, core strength, flexibility, basic tumbling skills, body shapes, and lots of gymnastics terminology.
TUMBLING- BEGINNER: 60 MINUTES 5-6 YEARS OLD
Beginners will learn beginner skills while focusing on technique, and body positions of the fundamentals of tumbling. Tumblers will be working on cartwheels, round offs, backbends, handstands etc. Your tumbler will be working on their core strength, flexibility, and overall fitness level. Your child is probably ready for beginner if they are able to keep focus for 1 hour, can retain info from week to week, and can do a forward roll with no assistance.
TUMBLING- INTERMEDIATE: 60 MINUTES 5-6 YEAR OLDS WITH EXPERIENCE, NEW 6 AND UP KIDS
INTERMEDIATE TUMBLERS will learn intermediate beginner skills while focusing on technique, and body positions. Tumblers will be working on backbend kick overs, front limbers, back handsprings, round offs, etc. Your tumbler is probably ready for super beginner if they are able to keep focus for 1 hour, can retain info from week to week, and is already able to do basic beginner tumbling skills such as a back handspring with little to no assistance.
TUMBLING-INTERMEDIATE or ADVANCED: WITH INSTRUCTOR PERMISSION- NO ONLINE REGISTRATION PERMITTED
Our Advanced and Elite level tumbling is assigned for your athlete only after a proper staff evaluation is done. In these 60 minute classes we will begin work on back handsprings, back and front tucks, layouts, fulls, aerials etc. your child is probably ready for an intermediate or advanced class if they are experienced tumblers working on connecting skills with correct form and body positions. Multiple classes per week is strongly encouraged.
A specific day and time available to use the space and floor to perfect the skills you're working on in your tumbling classes here at Evolve, or at any gym or school. These hour-long open gym times are unstructured, but are staffed with some helpful coaches around at all times. We schedule these periodically.
Our tumbling classes are open to anyone four and up in Davenport, IA or the Quad Cities area.
Once your child starts working with our tumbling coaches, they'll be prepared to show off their skills or get involved in other fun sports.
Tumbling classes are a great way to hone the skills your child needs for:
