Brisbane City Gymnastics Club
How could we best describe this absolutely unbelievable and stunning gymsport?
Acrobatic Gymnastics, or so called “acro”, is a beautiful, dynamic and spectacular sport for both girls and boys with ages ranging from as young as five up to grown up men and women in their twenties sometimes even in their thirties. The sport develops courage, strength, stamina, co-ordination, flexibility, jumping abilities, adroitness etc. Acrobatic gymnastics unites its power and poise, with grace and beauty to create an intriguing sport.
Acrobats in groups of two, three and four perform routines consisting of acrobatic moves, dance and tumbling, 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, somersaults and catches, and (at higher level) a 'combined' routine which includes elements from both balance and dynamic. Routines are judged on artistry, difficulty of skills and the execution of skills.
