New Tumbling Studio Opens in Uptown HobokenAug 29, 2021 09:35AM ● By Claire Byers
Devon Flores, who’s taught tumbling classes for more than 10 years in Hoboken, with hundreds of students each season, is opening a new tumbling studio in Uptown this month. Enrollment is now open for Tumblelab’s recreational tumbling program, which begins September 13.
Flores says she’s passionate about sharing “the love and power of gymnastics” and the satisfaction and joy the sport breeds. “Gymnastics is a lot more than skills,” she says. “It’s a direct line to building work ethic, self-confidence, social skills, strength and coordination.”
In addition to her decade of experience teaching inside a gym, Flores has also taught kindergarten. She uses many of her classroom techniques in her teaching style at the studio, and she says parents are drawn to her program because of her experience with children and innate love for her work.
Tumblelab’s recreational program is designed for children ages 3 through 15. The program teaches the fundamentals of the multidisciplined sport, with the main focus on individualized progression, learning and improving skills, and building confidence, Flores says.
“Our instructors demonstrate best practices to improve coordination, body awareness and flexibility,” she says.
The studio space is designed for work on floor tumbling, stretching and conditioning. It features a gymnastics-carpeted floor, tumbling mats, airtracks, floor beams, climbing rope and similar equipment.
Location: 1416 Willow Ave., Hoboken, NJ. For enrollment or more information, email Devon Flores at [email protected]
