“Cheernastics” is a common phrase to describe this type of class. This is designed for athletes interested in learning specific tumbling skills, skills in this class are limited to floor only.
All pre-requisites MUST be met prior to entering each class. But what most students do not understand is that a back handspring (and other skills) come from building blocks. That is why gymtiME offers 4 different tumbling levels, to help the student progress at the correct speed! Skipping basics or NOT training with a certified instructor will lead to poor technique that can cause safety issues, injuries, and inability to progress to more difficult skills down the road.
