Bundles of Tumbles began in 2012 when now owner Marianne Ecanosti took over the business from the previous owners. What started as a way for Marianne to use her experience as a dance teacher, became a long-term investment and career. After taking an 8-year break from dancing to enter the corporate world, Marianne realized her passion was working with children and teaching dance, so she went back to school and achieved her degree in Dance Arts. She was able to begin successful dance recreation programs in New Jersey, as well as work at several area dance studios. She was then presented with the opportunity to grow Bundles of Tumbles into the well-respected program it has become today. In 2021, after working with her mother for several years teaching classes and learning about running Bundles of Tumbles, Alyssa Ecanosti joined her mother in her efforts to franchise their growing business.
Since 2012, our company has grown, providing mobile dance and gymnastics to numerous preschools and after-school programs. Bundles of Tumbles is a completely mobile company, bringing classes directly to the customer’s location. Everything from the professional staff to the equipment is supplied on site for their 30-minute classes at preschools and daycare centers. In addition to their regularly scheduled preschool classes, they also offer a host of classes for children in preschool-6th grade, offered mainly through town recreation programs.
Because of the growing success Marianne and Alyssa have seen in their business, they want to give others the same opportunity to be both financially independent and build a fun fitness program for their own community through a Bundles of Tumbles franchise.
