Tumbling is a truly breathtaking type of gymnastics. It’s all about somersaults, flips, and twists, and linking them together, one right after the other. If you’ve already got prior gymnastics, dance, and or any athletic experience, it’s easy to get started with tumbling (not to mention a whole lot of fun).
If you already love doing somersaults or cartwheels, you’ll find tumbling really easy to get into – whatever age you are. You’ll start by learning how it feels to perform simple tricks and a sprung runway. As your technique and confidence grow, you’ll learn to perform amazing sequences of flips and twists. Does this sound like something that interests you? Rideau Gymnastics is now offering competitive power tumbling program with a world-class tumbling athlete, member of the Canadian National Team Michael Chaves. Michael has a phenomenal background in gymnastics; his education in the sport compliments the knowledge he has gained while competing for Team Canada during the last 6 years. If you like what you hear, come book a tryout with Michael himself and potentially you might become the next tumbling star!
