Cheer and Tumbling Sessions

While we are currently not scheduled to offer cheer and tumbling classes specifically at The Foundry, we do offer small group coaching and private instruction. If your child is looking to try out for their cheer team and want to be ready or if they need help with the fundamentals or improvement overall, then these sessions can help them achieve their goals.

Private sessions can be scheduled in advance and small groups of up to 4 children at a time are available upon request. Each participant must show up to their session on time and have all of the required equipment and attire ready at the start of the allotted time. We have changing areas available nearby as well as a locker area for storing belongings during the session.

Cheer Team Training

If you are a coach or parent looking for an external facility for your team to learn to perform cheer and tumbling better, or if you would like to consider competitive cheer as a team, we would be happy to discuss that with you. Please contact us for more information.
