My 10 year old sister is a competitive dancer who wants to learn how to
tumble. I used to be a gymnast and cheerleader awhile ago. I have already
taught her an aerial, front walkover, back walkover, front handspring,
back handspring, and she just recently got her back tuck and back layout.
Do you have any idea what I could teach her next?? This is as far advanced
as I have gotten, and my sister catches on extremely quickly. She masters
the skills practically as fast as I can teach her. Any ideas??
of those skills are cool. Make sure she can step out of EVERYTHING into
Teach her aerial walk-overs and aerial cartwheels.
Instead of front and back tucks advance her to PIKED flips... two foot
and one foot landings (step-out) Mounter front handsprings (feet always
together) in a series, whip-backs, twisting, Arabian front (round-off,
punch-lift 1/2 twist into a front flip, piked with a step out is VERY
