ACRO – Acrobatic Gymnastics

Acrobatic Gymnastics is a spectacular Gymsport for athletes who want to share the thrill of performing balances, flips and twists with their friends. While other gymnasts might handstand on the bars or beam, acrobats find themselves balancing on their teammate’s feet, hands or shoulders. With roles as tops, middles or bases, there is a place for everyone in Acrobatic Gymnastics.

Benefits of Acrobatics:

  • Is the perfect team based sport for people of all ages and abilities
  • Enhances balance, co-ordination and agility
  • Develops posture and confident body movement, including the ability to land safely
  • Challenges the mind and body to courageously reach new goals
  • Builds strength, flexibility and power

Acrobatic Gymnastics is an expressive, dynamic and spectacular sport for females and males; combining power and poise, with grace and beauty. This dynamic and spirited sport builds confidence and camaraderie amongst participants.

Acrobatic Gymnastics has a Level 1 – 10 Program in Australia. This is decided by ability and maturity not age, which is no barrier for Acrobatics.  Acrobatics is also competed internationally and we run the corresponding age groups in Australia.  There are 5 different group/pair types to perform in.
