Acrobatics

Our faculty is dedicated in providing your child with a nurturing, caring, healthy, and professional environment that allows every athlete the chance to experience the elements of acrobatics; confidence, coordination, creativity, grace, musicality, rhythm, self-esteem, technique, discipline, teamwork, and an appreciation for all aspects of gymnastics, and above all fun!

Warm Up

Class should begin with a teacher led warm up starting from the head and working down to the feet. Be sure to warm up wrist and ankles. Bridges should consist of sunrise, push over shoulders with feel together, walk feet to hands, and walk hands to feet. Warm up should end with splits and/or hyper splits. Be sure to stress how important it is to FINISH before and after each trick and to be TIGHT. Excellent FORM is key to successful acro.
