All About Acro
Acrobatic Gymnastics is a competitive gymnastic’s discipline where partnerships of gymnasts work together in either pairs or trios and perform various routines consisting of acrobatic moves, dance, & tumbling, which is set to music. There are three types of routines; a ‘balance’ routine where the focus is on strength, poise and flexibility; a ‘dynamic’ routine which includes throws, catches, and tumbling,; and a ‘combined’ routine which includes elements from both balance and dynamic.
Team: Gymnasts perform in pairs or groups and enter into and are judged at a specific level or age group category. 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 other gymnasts who become the ‘tops.’
