Since 1978, Children’s Tumbling has been the premier gymnastic and tumbling center in lower Manhattan, offering children from 16 months unique classes designed to inspire creativity as well as instill a strong technical foundation. All classes at Children’s Tumbling incorporate popular themes, music and exciting costumes to stimulate each child’s imagination. In addition to group and partnering work, each student receives individualized instruction to foster personal development. Imaginative movement stories are integrated with basic movement and gymnastic skills, such as the exploration of shapes and dynamics, partner work and exercises on the floor and apparatus.Developing physical confidence and natural ease of movement is basic to the approach.The variety of activities encourages flexibility and creativity assuring that each child meets his own level of achievement.
Toddlers climb large mats, swing on trapeze and rings, jump on the trampoline and play with equipment that encourages their gross motor skill. They learn the basics of tumbling in each class. Older Children focus on advanced basics and choreographed floor exercises, work with creative props and apparatus such as rhythmic ribbons, hoops, tightrope, trapeze, circus web, aerial silk and stilts.
Coaching and private lessons, which typically focus on a specific skill or project, can also be arranged.

*Parent & tot Through dramatic play we find the key to developing social and physical skills and motivate participation in class. There is free time to explore equipment before beginning the exercise adventures which include construction workers, firefighters, camping, exploring outer space, visiting a castle or being a playful puppy dog. Following that, adult and child focus together to explore balance and exercise on low safe structures including trapeze, rings, ladders and ropes.
