Jesse White Tumblers wow students at Waltonville

(Continued)

The Jesse White Tumbling Team currently has over 300 members who perform in seven different units. The team puts on more than 1,500 shows each year at major sporting events and at various community, business, and charity functions.

In the past, the Tumblers have performed at NFL and NBA games, as well as at MLB games. The team has also been featured in commercials and the movies “Ferris Buehler’s Day Off” and “Heaven is a Playground.”

Team member Jacob V. Robinson of Chicago, who also performed at Waltonville Friday, said the program provides a wealth of benefits.

“It’s a good way to stay in shape and also it helps you stay focused on your academics, too,” Robinson said.
