Tumbling

Tumbling is a form of gymnastics performed without props or equipment. Also referred to as floor gymnastics, common moves performed in tumbling include flips, somersaults, tucks, handstands and handsprings.

While some moves in the floor routines seen in the Olympics can be considered tumbling, tumbling does not feature the same elements of formal dance associated with rhythmic gymnastics. Some sports, like cheerleading, typically use tumbling moves.

If you already love doing somersaults or cartwheels, you'll find tumbling really easy to get into - whatever age you are. You'll start by learning how it feels to perform simple tricks on a sprung runway. Then, as your technique and confidence grows, you'll learn to perform amazing sequences of flips and twists. If you get a kick out of competing, there are contests for every age group from child to adult. Of course, if you want to tumble just for fun, go for it!

DCGC provides a safe, friendly environment with professional coaches to help you learn. Gymnastics can be adapted to be inclusive for everyone, regardless of your ability.
