Tumbling is the basis for most all Gymnastics, Cheer and Acrobatic sports. We offer a progressive, multi-class structure designed to build on existing skills and grow in a positive teaching environment. Our Coaching Staff consists of elite level, USA Gymnastics Credentialed Coaches who teach in a positive, safe and encouraging fashion that provides each Athlete with the knowledge and encouragement needed to progress in all aspects of Cheer, Acro and Power Tumbling.
EAA's Beginner Tumbling classes are perfect for the aspiring tumbler who needs to learn, develop and perfect fundamental tumbling skills such as handstands, bridges, rolls, cartwheels, walkovers and the ever important round-off. Students will also learn the basics of a back-handspring.
The primary goal of these classes is to properly prepare each tumbler for running tumbling passes which require a strong and efficient round-off and to develop the skills necessary for flipping. Tumblers should expect to train in a Beginner Class until their handstands are stable, their round-offs are clean and powerful, they can execute a back and front walkover, and they can cleanly execute a back-handspring with a spot and over a rolling mat.
Once they reach these milestones tumblers will be advanced to a Back-Handspring or an Intermediate Tumbling Class.

EEA's Handspring and Intermediate Tumbling Classes are for those athletes who have mastered their fundamental tumbling skills such as handstands, cartwheels, walkovers, round-offs and can execute a standing and running back-handspring without a spot and are ready to begin learning handspring series, and back and front tuck flips. These classes are perfect for those students that who to clean up and strengthen their back-handsprings and handspring series.
Intermediate classes will also begin to introduce alternate tumbling moves such as walk-overs, flips and rolls to standard round-off back-handspring passes.
Once students have fully mastered their series of back-handsprings without a spot and have a solid grasp of back tucks they will be advanced to a Tucks & More Class.
