About Us

Tumblebees Gymnastics has 35+ years history in the Miami-Dade County Area. Tumblebees has grown to become one of the largest and most successful gymnastics schools in South Florida. Through the years, the Tumblebees organization has owned and managed seven fully-equipped gymnastics centers and up to 50 different satellite programs, organized countless summer camps, holiday and seasonal shows, managed and directed over a dozen Sanctioned USAG & AAU Competitions, including the nationally known Jr. Orange Bowl Invite, and provided instruction to nearly 50,000 boys and girls in the Miami Area. As a contributor back to the community, Tumblebees has been an active supporter of the Special Olympics organization, both as a certified training facility and a competitive host club. On September 11, 1993, Tumblebees received a proclamation from Miami-Dade County for “Tumblebees Gymnastics Day”, because of its contribution to the health and fitness of the area’s children and young adults.
