About the ABS Training Program

Creating a life long healthy and creative athlete

The ABS training system is an elite program designed to bring together the athletic art forms of tumbling, circus and urban dance under one roof! Our program goals are to educate, build on strengths, inspire creativity, and form a supportive community of performers. We welcome all participants who are motivated and looking for exciting challenges to become well-rounded athletes and performers.

“Learn from a program based on fundamentals & mindful training”

Classes

We have a wide array of classes

Our program is for all body types and fitness levels.  The core fundamentals we teach are of gymnastics based so that any sports, activity or movement style the student participates in will be enhanced.  Our secret ingredients are to tackle the fundamentals of movement and add the knowledge and awareness of “technique” balanced with the student’s current body awareness.  Over time, the student’s awareness is refined while simultaneously developing strength and flexibility all in the “correct ways” and just like magic, all kinds of skills that were believed to be impossible are now possible!

The selection of equipment is nothing short of exceptional, with a primary focus on enhancing strength and spatial awareness. The inclusion of rings and parallel bars plays a pivotal role in building formidable strength, while the trampoline serves as an invaluable tool for honing spatial awareness skills. For those inclined towards tumbling and tricking, the air floors provide a perfect platform, ensuring safety and mastery. Aerial enthusiasts can explore their potential using various apparatuses, not only for thrilling tricks but also for conditioning. Moreover, an abundance of mats is readily available to facilitate safe landings during the pursuit of high-flying acrobatics or the essential art of falling correctly.

Have Questions?

Here are some common questions answered

Each class at ABS is 1 hour in length.  Open gym is 2 hours and private lessons can be booked for any length of time.

Our program is difficult but not too hard.  We determine a baseline for the individual and have exercises specific to that individual.  As the exercises become consistent, the next level of exercises are introduced.  We are able to start with someone with little to no experience and develop their skills to a high level acrobat or circus performer.

The classes we recommend depends on previous experience as well as what the final goal is.  Many dancers want to learn tumbling for their dance routines.  Many come wanting to take the tumbling class but after an assessment, we determine that the best classes to take are actually conditioning and handstand foundations.  In every situation we have seen, the dancer’s tumbling improves faster by taking conditioning and handstand foundations then taking tumbling skills.  This is because our conditioning and handstand training is tumbling specific.

 

 

We have multiple classes on most days.  You can take as many as you like.  We do recommend that the classes be spread out over the week to maximize retention of information.  It is also important to gradually increase the number of hours and allow the body to adapt rather than burn out or get injured.

The cancellation policy for private lessons is 24h before the lesson.

There are no makeup classes unless previously determined at the start of the registered session.  For sickness, a doctors note is required.

Absolutely!  We have taught many individuals all kinds of skills in shorter then usual time frames.  Learning or refining tumbling lines or specialty skills for auditions, competitions, performances are the most common situations.  In many cases, this type of training can work for the short term projects but isn’t ideal for long term development.
