Acrobatics teaches tumbling skills such as cartwheel, walkovers, handsprings as well as basic contortion and partner stunts. The movement of acrobatics is fluid compared to tumbling which is very sharp, so it can be added into dance routines seamlessly.
Our acrobatic athletes must also execute their skills on mats as well as hardwood floor, and we encourage them to learn a routine which is performed at the end of year show. Tumbling is taught in the style of cheerleading, sharing the skills that are necessary for cheer routines. Athletes do not have to do cheerleading to join this team.
We have a focus on safety so athletes learn what is required for them to execute these skills correctly and with a minimal risk of injury.
