Tumbles and Cheers offers gymnastic and cheerleading training to boys and girls from age five through adults. Although the 13,000 square foot Tumbles and Cheers facility is dedicated to the development of competitive gymnastic and cheerleading students, its mission includes the stated hope that all participants "achieve fulfillment through the joy of effort." Class fees vary, beginning at about $40 per month, and uniforms and competition fees may require additional expenditures. Tumbles and Cheers clearly knows the needs of its audience (parents), and to that end, offers a playroom area for younger children who may have to run off some energy while waiting for the end of an older sister's (or brother's) practice time. For current students, the facility maintains open practice times throughout the week, where coaches are available for spotting, but not for actual training or instruction. Because the schedule varies, we recommend checking the website or calling for current open practice times. The facility is the practice home of several cheerleading squads from west suburban high schools. The facility can be rented for competitions and events by prior arrangement with the management.
