What is Acrobatic Gymnastics?
If you combine the beauty of dance with the breathtaking excitement of gymnastics skills and color that combination with the synchronization of pairs figure skating, you come close to realizing the appeal of Acrobatic Gymnastics. To this add engaging choreography and brilliant attire, drawing spectators into the performances. The magnificent performances can hardly be accomplished without cooperative effort and mentoring among partners.
There are five pair/group events in Acrobatics Gymnastics: Women's Pairs, Men's Pairs, Mixed Pair's, Women's Trios, and Men's Four. These events are choreographed to music and consist of dance, tumbling, and partner skills. Each pair or group performs tempo, or flight skills, and balance skills. In addition to skills, athletes are expected to show confidence, grace, and unity on the competition floor. Throughout their performance, athletes are given the chance to show where hard work, dedication, and a positive attitude can lead.
