BUYER BEWARE: There are numerous competitors in the area who offer tumbling / acrobatics cheaper than we do. However you typically get what you pay for, and the safety of your child should be a priority. Many Dance, Cheer, Bounce, organizations have staff with little or no tumbling qualifications or recognized credentials in teaching Acro / Tumbling. Many organizations have young kids teaching their classes, 'street tumblers', or 'Mom's' securing their kids spot on the team. Most are not affiliated with any National Organization such as USA Gymnastics or . Quite frequently we are called upon to fix their mistakes when they can't get any further up the ladder. Too often athletes in unqualified programs suffer needless injuries, have & develop obscure fears, and have poor technique habits which are hard to break.
