My DD is 4 and has been taking gymnastics for 2 1/2 years. She can't do a cart wheel but I see other girls her age doing them. Her gymnastics place emphasizes more on bar work & forward / backward rolls. Is this normal?

  • I don't know, my daughter just turned 7 and has been in gymnastics for over a year and can't do a very good cartwheel at all. Yet her 4 year old brother can do one very well and he's only been in gymnastics for the last few months. I think that some kids are coordinated that way and some aren't. Unfortunately my daughter isn't, lol. I also notice that the different classes emphasize different skills too.
