How are tumbling classes at ARIZONA ALL-STARS different from gymnastic classes?
Tumbling classes at Arizona All-Stars revolve strictly around floorwork. Tumbling training involves trampolines, spring floors and various instructional mats. Athletes begin by learning forward rolls, handstands, cartwheels, and progress to backhandsprings, tucks, and full twisting lay-outs among other advanced skills. Unlike gymnastics, we consider a back handspring a basic skill and progress tumblers at a quicker rate than a traditional gymnastics class.
How is cheerleading at Arizona All-Stars Force different from dance classes?
If you like dance, you’ll LOVE competitive cheerleading! Cheerleading is fast paced and incorporates dance, tumbling and acrobatics all into one jam packed routine. It is also one of the most team oriented sports out there. At Arizona All-Stars Force we very much promote being part of our “Family”. We pride ourselves in not only promoting athleticism but sportsmanship and self-confidence as well. We want our athletes to grow with our program and learn what it’s like to be part of a real team as well as learn valuable life lessons!
