Tumbling Classes

Tumble classes meet once every week for 60 minutes, these classes are designed to help athletes develop the strength, control, conditioning, and technique necessary to execute tumbling skills that are both safe and aesthetically pleasing. Our tumbling instructors are some of the most qualified in the industry and have something to offer athletes of ANY age and ability level! Safety is always our top priority at East Coast Nitros, which means you should expect two things: Level progression: Athletes MUST show mastery of all prior level skills before moving on to the the next level (see the chart below). Conditioning: Tumbling classes at The East Coast Nitros have many drills and conditioning exercises built into them. This not only gives athletes the strength necessary to throw beautiful tumbling skills but also the stamina required to throw them in a competitive routine. Below is a description of skills being taught in the various classes offered here at The East Coast Nitros. With the exception of our Beginner class, which has no prerequisites, athletes must have mastered all skills from all previous levels before enrolling in a higher level class.
