My students need tumbling mats so they can begin learning gymnastics in our studio! Without mats I cannot provide proper safety requirements for my children.
Everyone deserves a chance to dance! All children deserve an outlet where they can express who they are. A place where they feel safe where they can push beyond their boundaries.
I work in a title 1 Middle School located in an underserved community in Brooklyn, NY.
My school is really a diamond in the rough. We are fortunate enough to fully function as a performing arts middle school. As the dance teacher I am able to see the same students that, "major," in dance for all three years together. My goal is to get my dancers into performing arts high schools when they graduate so they can continue their passion; if they choose to. Majority of my children will not have the opportunity to receive proper dance education without having it free in our public school. We have the most thoughtful, genuine, creative, driven children and they deserve the world. But in baby steps, lets start with mats!
With these tumbling mats my children will be able to learn different levels of gymnastics. Most of the movement in gymnastics can be very difficult. Mats are needed because first and foremost children need to be safe! The mats are perfectly cushioned to help break any fall that may occur. We also practice different genres of dance and some of the movements learned may be harsh on the body. Mats will help prevent injury before the moves are performed properly.
The mats will make a gigantic difference in the level of dance and gymnastics for my children!
Adding tumbling into their curriculum will help set them apart from other children when they go to auditions for high schools. My biggest goal is to keep them dancing and keep their passion going. These mats will be a huge contributing factor in their education and for their future.
