During the summer of 2015, life-long friends Erika Moreland and Jo Ellen Davis decided to use their backgrounds in dance, cheer, and power tumbling to create recreational tumbling classes for kids. They converted Erika’s enclosed half-sized basketball court into a tumbling area with mats and a tumbling trak. Forty-five students signed up for the first week of classes with 90 attending during the second week.
In the Spring of 2016, Tumble n’ Fly stepped in the competitive tumbling and trampoline arena and experienced great success. By 2017, all 20 tumbling and trampoline team members qualified for Nationals. The cheer squad made their competitive debut in 2017 and are full of enthusiasm for this new opportunity. They are excited for what the future holds for Tumble n’ Fly as they genuinely care about having fun with their students while teaching the importance of proper technique, hard work, and sportsmanship.
|Tumble n’ Fly offers a variety of classes based on age and experience level. Parents may come to watch their tumbler during the first week of every month. If you are unsure which class would be best for your tumbler, please contact us and we’ll be happy to offer a recommendation! |
