Acrobatic Gymnastics

Acrobatic Gymnastics or Sport Acrobatics is a competitive gymnastic discipline with a mixture of gymnastics and dance. Engaging choreography and brilliant attire are the essential part of the sport. In acrobatics gymnasts work together in groups of two, three or four gymnasts and perform floor and balance routines to music consisting of acrobatic moves, dance and tumbling. Acrobatic routines include balances, somersaults, throws and catches. The gymnasts tell exciting stories with their performances, drawing the attention of spectators with thrilling rhythm, startling balance skills, and amazing figures.
Acrobatic gymnastics is a very theatrical sport popular with boys and girls as young as five, especially those who love to perform. To be good in acrobatic gymnastics kids need to be strong, flexible and have good body awareness. Acrobatics also requires extraordinary motor coordination, feats of balance, agility and an incredible amount of trust between the gymnasts. The breathtaking acrobatics routines could not be accomplished without mentoring among partners and cooperative effort. What’s important, acrobatic gymnastics can be taken up by kids of different sizes and constitution. Unlike artistic gymnastics, where small gymnasts tend to get ahead, acrobatic gymnastics actually needs bigger and stronger athletes. For example, big and older athletes (12-15-year-old) can be teamed up with a petite younger kid, so they are able to throw him or her up in the air and catch back.
