CLASSES FOR TODDLERS AND PRE SCHOOLERS


Toddler Tumbling with Amy


Toddler tumbling is an energetic class aimed at developing confidence, coordination, and body awareness as your child learns to climb, run, jump and roll. Each class is full of fun learning activities that focus on colors, shapes, body parts, and social interactions such as taking turns. This class introduces new physical concepts such as safe somersaults, rolling, balance, stretching, jumping and strength training.

Amy Combs has been a professional teacher for eight years, working with toddlers and children from walking age to teen.  She trained professionally in England at both the Royal Ballet school and Elmhurst School of Performing Arts. There she established an understanding of how to teach and perform in the Arts, including dance and tumbling skills and she qualified to teach with the RAD (Royal Academy Of Dance in London).  Since moving to the US, Amy has continued to teach in these areas. Her previous schools Include Pamela School for Dance, and Creative Arts in Las Vegas where she taught dance and tumbling.
