Acrobatic gymnastics is a competitive gymnastic discipline where partnerships of gymnasts work together and perform figures consisting of acrobatic moves, dance and tumbling.
There are three types of routines; a 'balance' routine where the focus is on strength, poise and flexibility; a 'dynamic' routine which includes throws, somersaults and catches; and combined routines which includes elements from both balance and dynamic.
Acrobatic gymnasts perform in pairs or groups so if your a team player and enjoy a challenge this could be the sport for you!
In each partnership, the gymnasts' different sizes and abilities will be balanced to complement each other in order to carry out the complex moves. Some will mainly carry out supporting and pitching roles, and are known as bases. They are then balanced with smaller gymnasts who become the tops.
Attendance will be through selection from our Recreational classes.
Harrogate Gymnastics take part in many competitions throughout the year including the National Development Pathway (NDPs). We strive to provide an enjoyable environment where the gymnasts are enjoying each other's company and becoming the best gymnast they can be.
