My daughter started taking tumbling classes at Kelsey’s in the Summer of 2016. With their skilled and patient instructors, she was able to overcome fears and greatly advance her tumbling skills. The class sizes, open gyms, summer clinics, and private instruction have all been excellent. Our plan was to try Kelsey’s out for the summer, she loved it so much we never left!
Danielle is a fantastic tumbling coach! She's been coaching my daughter now for 8 years and has taught her many amazing tumbling skills. The excitement that she has when one of her students gets a new skill is awesome! She has such great energy that her students want to learn new skills, they want to come to class, and they love it! My daughter would not be a High School Cheerleader if it wasn't for her.
We were looking for something my 7yr old would be interested in. As much as I wanted her to dance, it just wasn't her thing. While at dance she would watch Danielle and the girls tumble and was infatuated. We started privates with Danielle and that turned into all-star cheer. Five years later, we are still taking privates with Danielle. Makayla has quickly moved up levels in cheer, all the while impressing her coaches. The skills and the perfect form that Danielle has taught her is 100% the reason for Makayla's cheer success. Danielle is dedicated and driven to see that all her students succeed. She has been and always will be our #1 recommendation for anyone looking for the best tumbling coach.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! 5 STARS
My daughter has been taking private tumbling lessons with Kelly for 6 years! We can’t say enough wonderful things about her. In all that time my daughter has never gotten hurt. Kelly is very calm, challenging, encouraging & knowledgeable. She makes my daughter feel so comfortable & explains the steps she needs to take to complete her next task in a simple way. Kelly is very patient with her and really encourages her. She takes the time to prefect the skill where some would just stop teaching it one they achieve it. She is honest with me about my daughter’s improvement or lack thereof. (Not every lesson is perfect, my daughter does have a bad day once and awhile.) My daughter looks forward to her private lesson every time. At the end of it she is sweaty and you can tell she really worked hard in that 30 minutes. Kelly is amazing and incredibly knowledgeable about tumbling, safety & the whole competitive side of the sport. I would recommend her hands down to anyone looking to work hard to improve themselves. The private lesson my daughter gets with Kelly is worth every penny.

In 2010, I chose Kelly to be my private tumbling instructor. Eight years later and I am still confident that it was the best decision I could have made in the course of my tumbling career. When I started taking privates with Kelly, I had already been cheering for two years. Therefore, I already had skills under my belt. However, the time that I spent doing lessons with Kelly not only allowed me to substantially improve the technique of the skills I already had, but it allowed me to progress so much further. In the time I spent with Kelly, I worked my way from a level one team to a level five team, attempting full twisting skills on the floor. Personally, I was not a person who was able to just work and get a new skill every couple of weeks. I had to really work for and practice the skills I gained, and Kelly was equipped with ample patience to support me along the way. Additionally, when I choose Kelly as my instructor, I gained so much more than a tumbling coach. Kelly is not just a coach to me. She is my friend, and she has always been to there to support me in all of my endeavors, cheerleading and otherwise.
My daughter loves Coach Kelly and all the staff at KD Tumbling. The coaches are kind, knowledgeable, and always encouraging. They have helped her improve her core strength, tumbling skills, and most importantly her self-confidence. - Lori B.
