Host Your Gymnast's Birthday With Us!!!


Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know what level my child is or should be?

We don't label our classes with levels. Each child completes an intro class and is then placed in a teacher approved class.

Introduction Month

Introduction month is class for one hour a week for 4 weeks, and allows us to get to know your child's ability and personality.

Teacher Approval Classes

Upon completion of the Intro class (one month), students will be placed into a teacher approval class. The Teacher Approval class is not based on age, but, determined by ability and personality.

What should my child wear to class?

Form fitting and comfy! Leo's are great but, not mandatory. Boys wear T-shirts and shorts with no buckles, snaps or zippers. All T-shirts should be tucked into pants. Students may go barefoot the Intro month but are required to wear gymnastics shoes thereafter. We have them available for purchase in the studio for $20 pair. Please have long hair tied back, bangs too. No hard balls or barrettes. No rings, earrings or necklaces please.

Can I bring something to munch on or a snack?

Gum chewing, eating, or drinking is not allowed during class. A water fountain is located in waiting room.

What if we have out of town guest who want to watch my child in class?

Observers are welcome at any time. At all times while observing, please remain quiet.

Can I bring my other children?

Keep other siblings seated or in the viewing area. Please do not talk with your child while he/she is in class.

How do I know if you are closed for bad weather?

Tilton's Acrobatics and Tumbling follows the Tigard/Tualatin School District for weather closures only. If Tualatin School District is closed due to weather, so is the studio. Please check your e-mail for timely updates and notifications. You can also check our Instagram page, or you may login to your Parent Portal at We do not prorate or refund or offer makeups if the Gym is closed due to bad weather.

What do I do if my child misses a class?

Due to space limitations we are unable to provide make ups in our regular classes. We do not prorate or refund for missed classes or if the Gym is closed due to bad weather. It is your responsibility to make it to your scheduled class day and time. As a courtesy we will give passes for open gym as follows:
1 hr. class = pass for one open gym session 
2 hr. class = pass for two open gym sessions 
***If you missed your scheduled class you can fill out an open gym pass request and then your child will be added to the open gym pass list. You can show up on any Friday 6-8pm or Saturday from 3-5pm that works for your family, check in with the teacher upon arrival and you are all set. Passes expire 6 months from missed class.

How much does the class cost?

Tuition is $18 per hour, per class, per week, per month. The Introductory month is always 4 consecutive classes. If the month has 4 classes you pay for 4 classes, if the month has 5 weeks, you pay for 5 weeks, if the month has 2 weeks (due to a holiday), you pay for 2 weeks.

When is tuition due?

Tuition is due on the 1st of each month. If there is no payment received by the 10th of the month, we assess a $15 late fee on your account. There is a $20.00 NSF fee on all Credit and Debit cards as well as returned checks. Please email Laura at with any questions or billing issues.

How can I update my Credit or Debit card with you?

Login to your Parent Portal and select the My Account tab.

Can I look up my balance?

Login to your Parent Portal and select the Fees and Payments tab.

Can my child take private lessons?

Absolutely, all private lessons are available for enrollment on our website. Students are encouraged to sign up for private lessons to improve their gymnastics skills. Any student signing up for private lessons must be registered in our system. Private lessons are available to compliment your gymnast’s weekly class, not as a substitute.

How does my child move up ?

All class placements outside of the Intro class are based on ability and personality. We are here to provide an alternative approach to teaching gymnastics in a non-competitive environment. Therefore we choose not to label our classes with levels or achievement status. Every student should feel challenged. Students are moved anytime during the year as they master the skills at their level. We encourage parent/teacher communication. You may email Lori at

"Ever since the first class, I have been so impressed by Lori's love and guidance of the kids. My daughter looks forward to class every week. She has already learned so much!"

You are such a great teacher! Thanks!



"My daughter Taylor has been taking lessons at Tilton’s regularly for a little over a year and has progressed quickly. She looks forward to gymnastics each week and as a mother, I love how edifying the instructors are and the passion they put into helping my daughter be the best that she can be."



After trying several local gymnastics studios over the course of many years (and with two daughters), we have found that the Tilton’s training and professionalism is simply superior to anywhere else. From the low student/teacher ratio (and consistency of teachers from week to week), to the skill-based progression that prioritizes safety on the mat, I completely trust that Tilton’s has my daughter’s best interest at heart - both as a gymnast and as a whole person. Perhaps my favorite part about Tilton’s is that it has helped grow my shy, introverted 5 year-old into a strong, confident and capable 7-year old! She is no longer the quiet mouse watching others from the corner. She has been pushed appropriately and in ways that have allowed her to see her own progress in a short period of time, something I didn’t see at the other studios we had tried. Tilton’s is so much more than expensive babysitting for young gymnasts and offers a consistent, predictable routine that kids thrive within. As a parent, I am grateful for the professional and well-educated young staff who handle all the kids with such love and grace, yet simultaneously serve as strong role models, teaching my daughter that it’s better to be healthy and strong than aiming for unrealistic perfection. My daughter feels safe, cared for and challenged in the Tilton’s environment, and that combination has allowed her physical abilities to progress more than anywhere else she has been.

Very gratefully, Aimee, Tualatin, Oregon



When Caroline Wagner sent her first daughter off to an introductory class, she wasn’t sure what to expect.
“Ella LOVED it,” Caroline recalls. “The friends, the fun – she grew so much in a week.” The Wagners have since sent their two other children to Tilton's, with similar results. “ Tilton's rocks!
