Mr. Hank Fox

Teacher


Hank has been coaching tumbling for 15 years. Althought he instructs traditional "gymnastics/tumbling", he has a large number of cheerleaders from all surrounding schools and cheer programs he works with. Oak Harbor, Port Clinton, Woodmore, St. Joe's Central Catholic, Genoa, Gibsonburg, Fremont Ross, Midwest Cheer Academy, and Champion Cheer.

He is a "hands on" spotter and coach, and hand spots up to level 9 gymnastics skills. He prides himself not just in getting a tumbler/dancer to successfully and cleanly execute a skill, but to also understand the "how" and "why" as to the mechanics of the skill.

In addition to tumbling, he has been tapping/instructing tap for over 25 years and Hip-Hop for over 10 years. He is still an acting member of his family owned performing arts center in Oak Harbor which has been in operation for over 25 years and promises to bring just as much passion and energy to the students of VIBE as he does elsewhere!
