Book here for our Acro taster sessions!

The sessions are open to gymnasts aged 5 (school year 1) and over. You don't have to be a member of the Academy to join in - everyone is welcome!

Acrobatic gymnastics is all about working as a team to pull off the most spectacular balances and throws. By learning as a pair or group, you can have a lot of fun developing your skills, strength and co-ordination. The Acro discipline:

  • Enhances balance, co-ordination and agility 
  • Develops posture and confident body movement, including the ability to land safely 
  • Challenges the mind and body to courageously reach new goals 
  • Builds strength, flexibility and power 
  • Is the perfect team based sport for people of all ages and abilities

We are currently working towards starting an Acro Development group. Suitable gymnasts will be selected to join this group following the taster sessions. Spaces are limited, however, so there may be a wait. 

Younger gymnasts within this group will be work on handstands, holds and balances and show strong basic skills such as cartwheel, bunny hops, bridges and rolls. Tops should demonstrate flexibility,  a willingness to have a go, and to not be afraid of heights!

Older gymnasts will work on maintaining flexibility, building strength and developing their tumbles. They should demonstrate a solid set of basic skills and be able to support the weight of a smaller gymnast.

Acro is floor based and uses a trampoline and tumbling track, but doesn’t use any of the other gymnastics apparatus.
