Acrobatic Gymnastics (acro) is an amazing form of gymnastics that teaches strength, balance, grace, flexibility and teamwork. For girls and boys who love gymnastics and want to try something new, acro provides the opportunity to continue to learn and improve upon tumbling and dance skills while taking on new challenges. Acro also includes partner skills composed of dynamic and balance moves.
Here’s why we love acro:
You don’t have to start acro at an extremely young age to succeed
All body types are required for a successful acro team- made up of a base, a middle and a top
Acro teams involve 2-4 partners made up of all boys, all girls or mixed pairs
Acro builds strength, flexibility, balance, endurance and friendships!
Who should try acrobatic gymnastics?
Anyone who loves gymnastics, tumbling, or just staying active
Kids of all ages who want to learn a new skill (acro skill are generally taught after age 5)
Boys and girls who want to make new friends with this incredible team sport
Spotlight now offers both a competitive team and non-competitive pre-team. We also offer recreational classes with acrobatic gymnastics.
UPDATE: Until social distancing restrictions are lifted, acro will focus on hand blocks, flexibility, strength and tumbling. We look forward to resuming partner skills as soon as safely possible!
