Excel Tumbling Clinics 2018
Do you have some tumbling skills you are sooooo close to getting and just need a little more refined time to work on them? Or maybe you would like to Audition for our 2018 Nutcracker and would like to increase your skill level before auditions? Either way, a clinic is a great way to improve your skills by focusing on just a few things in a short time frame and we will offer two levels at the same time so your tumbler is pushed and given the attention they need. Along with our new Tumbling Effect training and new equipment, we are able to help our students reach the next level and gain more confidence. Ms. Danielle, Ms. Janelle and Ms. Jess who are all certified with Tumbling Effect are so excited to share these clinic drills with you and we can’t wait to see what you achieve! Here is the info!
