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! 

Acrobatic Gymnastics is a modern and artistic gymnastics discipline full of expression, requiring an extraordinary amount of courage and trust amongst gymnasts.









Also known as acro, this is a dramatic visual discipline popular with spectators, with routines choreographed to music and including partnership work in five categories of competition:

  • Women's pair
  • Men's Pair
  • Mixed Pair
  • Women's Group
  • Men's Group

This discipline is both physically and psychologically demanding.  It involves gymnasts working closely together on a 12m x 12m sprung floor, building up trust and responsibility for each other and developing skills in balance and dynamic elements.
