So, who is Mark Kurmey of Martensville’s Tumblers Gymnastics and why do we think he’s so awesome?
Mark Kurmey has been an avid supporter of Kindermusik with Kari & Friends for the past few years. He’s constantly sharing our posts on social media and letting his Tumblers families know about who we are and what Kindermusik is about. So, we figured it was time to introduce you to this kind and generous man, and to say a big thank-you to him!
Without further ado, here’s our Q&A with Mark!
Q: Hi Mark! Thanks so much for doing this. Could you tell our readers a bit about the Kindermusik connection? How did you hear about us?
A: I heard about you through Mrs. (Johanna) Clancy awhile back. Our friendship and the commonality in our lives have helped build our programs in our world. Not only is physical literacy important, but so is playing with music — especially at a young age. Mrs. Clancy is a music teacher with Kindermusik and she teaches ballet to our competitive girls. She also helps assist with the Special Olympic class on Sundays. She is an amazing instructor.
Q: Tell us about Tumblers Gymnastics. When did you start it and why?
A: I started Tumblers Gymnastics in 2014 to provide a safe and fun place for kids in the area to learn physical literacy and provide opportunities which weren’t available without having to drive a long distance. Gymnastics is one of my passions.
Q: What is your favourite memory from a Tumblers Gymnastics class?
A: One particular thing that happens almost daily makes me smile every time. Often, children tell me random stories from their lives!
Q: Can you name three things that make Martensville an awesome place to live and visit?
Q: We hear that you’ve got a Family Circus Night coming up at Tumblers. What can families expect? Are tickets only available in advance or can they be bought at the door?
