What is acro?
Acro combines the beauty of dance with the strength and agility of acrobatics. Routines are choreographed to music and consist of dance, tumbling, and partner skills. At the elite level, each pair or group performs a balance, dynamic and combined routine. Pyramids and partner holds characterize the balance routine, while synchronized tumbling and intricate flight elements define the dynamic exercise. In competition, acrobatic gymnastics pairs consists of a base and a top. A women's group includes three athletes - a base, middle and top partner – while a men's group has four athletes, a base, two middle partners and one top partner. Unlike other gymnastics, Acro is a partner sport; you must have trust in your partners. They depend on each other and need each other for practice and performances. Recreational acro teams are a fun way to build coordination, strength, flexibility, and acrobatic skills. Competitive teams are year round, competing from March to July both regionally and nationally. Tryouts are required to join the competitive team.
The youth pre-team is a fun (12-14) week program for new athletes to be introduced to Acro and competition. Students learn elementary acrobatic and dance skills which are then put into a choreographed routine to music. Athletes perform routines and receive medals and certificates at the end of the program. The youth acro pre-team is an excellent way for children to learn basic acrobatics in a session format, be part of a team, and gain experience for competitive levels.
Competitive acro is a year round sport with local, state, regional and national competitions Try outs are required to join the competitive team. Athletes compete January-July each season.
