At Harrogate Gymnastics Club we have an active acrobatics section. Even though we have only been offering classes for less than a year we have already taken part in the Yorkshire Championships and Gym Fusion the BG national festival programme.
What is it?
Acrobatics is a beautiful and most spectacular form of gymnastics. It is a choreographed mix of floor skills, dance, balances and tumbling performed in pairs or small groups. Competitive gymnasts require not only flexibility and strength but also a flair for dance and expression to music. Gymnasts perform a 2 minute routine to music which includes graded exercises and skills. At higher levels the routines can be quite amazing! High performance gymnasts have the opportunity to compete at National competitions.
