Level Descriptions

**We will be following the AcrobaticArts level of progressions. Our staff has quickly fallen in love with their program. Why? Because Acrobatic Arts focuses on BOTH aspects of tumbling; strength and flexibility. This varies differently from other programs because this program progresses students in a safe and healthy way as opposed to producing tricks with high risks. Our tumblers will have the strength and flexibility to perform tricks for their level. They will then perfect all aspects of the level BEFORE moving up to the next level. Which means tricks will be performed with ease and that lessons the chance of injury. Our goal it to produce quality tumblers and this program will allow us to do just that!


We will be offering Levels 1 - 12.
