Being Respectful and Responsible
From waiting in line for the water fountain to waiting their turn to practice a new skill they’ve been working on, tumbling will help teach your kids how to control their excitement and be patient and respectful while waiting for their turn. With being patient, tumblers will learn good manners and whether it’s the right time to chat or if it’s time to focus. Following safety rules and directions will be stressed in class to make sure young tumblers acknowledge how to safely practice their skills, helping them learn to make responsible choices.
Working as a Team Player
Being a part of tumbling class teaches kids to work together and care about each other’s goals and achievements. Also, tumbling classes exposes kids to accountability and how to help clean up after themselves whether it’s putting mats away or making sure there’s no trash on the floor. Tumbling class will also allow young tumblers to make new friendships and learn to respect their peers.
Builds Confidence and Skills
One way your kiddos start to build up their skills and confidence is through coordination. Coordination is a combination of balance, strength, and body awareness, which is essential for all athletics and is an amazing building block towards future sports and dance careers. Through building strength and new skills, tumblers will become more ambitious and set personal goals for themselves inside and out of tumbling. Other older tumblers will also help inspire and show younger tumblers their tumbling goals are achievable. Tumblers will also become more courageous and push themselves to new limits to become to best versions of themselves in and out of the studio.
Tumbling is a great way to introduce your children to the basics of dance and other athletic sports while helping them grow into amazing individuals and performers. Your children need a caring and welcoming environment full of opportunities and fun to help them find their interests and become responsible, kind, and confident people!
