The music swells. You climb onto your partner's shoulders and take a deep breath. The next thing you know you're flying through the air, spinning and twisting. You can almost feel the crowd gasp...
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. What better way to release your inner performer?
It's popular with adults, teens and even boys and girls as young as five. Basically, anyone who loves to perform. And best of all, you don't need any experience to get started.

You'll begin by getting to grips with the basics of gymnastics. The somersaults, twists and turns - plus a few moves you can only perform in teams of two or more. As you build your strength and technique, you'll become part of a team and start creating show-stopping routines that you can perform together. If you want, you can even entertain the crowds at one of the competitions for your age group. Of course, you can take part just for fun and fitness if you prefer.
