Recreation Notes: Tumbling and tennis

Ridgefield Parks & Recreation is offering FLIPS Tumbling for boys and girls in kindergarten through eighth grade. Led by former Walt Disney World stuntman Phil Fotopoulos, this program is great for cheerleaders, gymnasts and break dancers. Students will enjoy classes designed to help refine their tumbling skills for cartwheels, handstands, back handsprings, tucks, and everything in between. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade meet on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday from 4:30 to 5:30 at the recreation center. Students in fourth through eighth grade meet on the same days from 5:30 to 6:30. Students in sixth through 12th grade meet only on Wednesday, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Groups will be divided according to age and skill level. The next session starts on Jan. 22. You may try a class once for a $25 drop-in rate.
