Miss Shayna is the director of the tumbling program at Stage Right Performing Arts Studio. Shayna's first teaching job was in the tumbling arts with Denise Stec of East Tawas. She studies spotting and teaching technique with Miss Stec for years and has established a strong curriculum for safe and challenging tumbling. Miss Shayna trains all instructors on her methods to ensure consistency for students as they grow in their skills.
The first three roles of our tumbling program are Safety, Safety, Safety. We will develop necessary skills while always putting safety and long term health and wellness of our students first.
Tumble Tots: This class is an excellent introduction to movement for young children who are full of energy and able to follow directions. Students work on basics of tumbling, strength, coordination, following directions, and directional awareness.
Junior Level Tumbling:
We offer levels 2-3 for our junior levels. In these classes students begin learning their rolls, handstands, cartwheels, round-offs, back walk overs, and introduction to handsprings.
Intermediate Level Tumbling:
This is for students level 4-5. Students will continue to work on Hand Springs and Back Tucks while introducing combinations. Students must be placed or invited to these classes.
Students are required to wear a leotard or unitard. Stretch pants are allowed. Hair is required to be pulled into a ponytail. No hanging earrings or necklaces are allowed. Tumbling shoes are also required. Stage Right does offer all dance / gymnastics wear at the studio.
