Acrobatic Gymnastics

We offer gymnastics classes for children from the age of 5 upwards.  The children begin in one of our recreational classes where they are taught some of the basic gymnastic skills such as cartwheels, rolls, balancing and basic vaulting.  We then encourage the children to work towards the British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards, and then work towards the Advanced proficiency Awards for floor work.

Acrobatic gymnastics is performed on a 12m x 12m floor area, and the gymnasts work in partnership with each other to perform balancing skills, dynamic moves and individual elements.  The partnerships can be both female, both male, mixed pairs, women's trios and men's fours.  The routines that are performed are around 2 minutes long and must be constructed in an artistic way and performed in harmony with one another.

Great Britain is a highly regarded nation in Acrobatic Gymnastics, and has achieved much success internationally.
