Acrobatic

Acrobatic Gymnastics is a modern and artistic gymnastics discipline which requires an extraordinary amount of courage and trust amongst gymnasts.

Acrobatic routines are choreographed to music and presented on a 12 X 12 metre sprung floor surface, Acrobatic Gymnastics is full of expression.

A dramatic visual discipline popular with spectators, Acrobatic Gymnastics includes partnership work on the floor where there are five categories of competition:

women’s pairs;
men’s pairs;
mixed pairs;
women’s trios;
and men’s fours.

This discipline is both physically and psychologically demanding. It involves gymnasts working closely together, building up trust and responsibility for each other and developing skills in balance and dynamic elements. Acrobatic Gymnastics combines the skill and activity of the gymnast, expressive movement and artistry of a dancer and the courage and excitement of the acrobat.
