Tumbling Class Cost is separate from Cheer Tuition, ICA does collect this tuition and we pay LMG as a group Monthly and usually costs around $50 per month   New this summer, an advanced tumbling class is being offered as next level opportunity for those who have particular skills already. This is a good class to add or instead of regular class during the summer.

We are a nonprofit organization and its  more than cheerleading to us.  We are shaping strong confident young people into not only cheer athletes but confident members of the community who understand the meaning of teamwork, friendship, dedication and what it means to give back. We usually have at least one community service project a season.
