Beginner Tumbling teaches skills like cartwheels, handstands, rolls, and kick-overs.

 

Intermediate/Advanced Tumbling covers skills back walkovers, back handsprings, and aerials. To enroll in Inter/Adv Tumbling, students must be able to backbend to the floor from standing, perform a bridge kickover, and hold a handstand against the wall for 30 seconds.

Tumbling classes are meant for students who would like extra practice working on skills or for students who do not want to participate in the recital. 

Advanced skills take time, muscle memory, strength, and patience. Catapult Movement does not promise that any student will master any skill in a particular time frame.
