Our Tumbling Program is designed to prepare our dance students for Acro by working on specific strength and skills based goals. Our tumbling program has 4 Levels: Creative Tumbling, Tumbling 1, Tumbling 2, and Tumbling 3. Each level works on a variety of flexibility, strength, and tumbling skills to help prepare them for the next level. This is a non-performing class which means they will not perform a routine in the Spring Production. Tumbling classes do hold a separate tumbling showcase each year.
Tumbling Class Attire:
- Black Cap Sleeved Leotard
- Black Fitted Shorts
- Bare Feet

By offering a tumbling and acro program to our students, we are able to increase our dancers range of skills and enhance their artistry. We aim to provide our students with a strong foundation in dance technique and seamlessly combine it with the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Acro students will learn how to safely and confidently execute skills such as cartwheels, handsprings and aerials, along with improving their strength, balance and flexibility.
Innovations Dance Academy holds the safety of our dancers and instructors as our utmost priority. All basic skills must be performed correctly before any more advanced skills are introduced. Instructors may only teach or spot skills in which they are qualified. At no time should any acro or tumbling skill be taught by a student. All acro and tumbling classes are taught in studio with skills being performed on mats (where necessary) and with instructor supervision. No family members, friends or unenrolled students will be allowed in the room during class time so the instructor can give full attention to enrolled students.
Placement in our tumbling and acro program is based strictly on skill level rather than age. Pass offs for required skills should be conducted by the instructor, at minimum, once per semester. Only when a student passes off all skills required in a level with the Innovations Dance Academy acro or tumbling instructor satisfactorily, they then be allowed to move up to the next level.
We offer tumbling classes in both Lehi and Saratoga Springs locations. Visit our registration page to see the class times and cost of tuition.
