Acrobatic Gymnastics is a recognized discipline by the USA Gymnastics organization. Likewise, it is also recognized as competitive acrobatics in several colleges around the country, with many scholarship opportunities.
The Flips Acrobatic gymnasts compete in local, state, regional national and international events annually.
Our Acro competitive program begins 1st September and runs through the 31st of August annually. We do however, evaluate and accept athletes throughout the year and we welcome your interest.
Acrobatic Gymnastics (Acro) is an activity that emphasizes the combined beauty of Dance and Acrobatics. Gymnastic skills add excitement to the discipline. Acro skills are made up of Balance elements which highlight the beauty and grace of the discipline, while the Dynamic elements highlight the exciting agility of the athletes performing amazing skills. In short, it is a form of partner gymnastics that combines the beauty of dance and the excitement of gymnastic floor routines. Two, three or more people move together in perfect harmony creating excellence through balance and dynamic elements. It improves strength, flexibility, body awareness and communication skills.
