Realis Gymnastics in Redlands and Moreno Valley offers
Acro classes are offered to gymnasts at all levels from beginning to advanced with opportunities to join our competitive team.
Acrobatic gymnastics is a gymnastics discipline where athletes work together to perform acrobatic skills, tumbling, and dance all choreographed to music. Balance routines focus on strength and flexibility and include balance elements. Dynamic routines focus on tosses and catches, and include tumbling. Combined routines contain both balance and dynamic skills. Compulsory levels perform one routine, intermediate levels perform two routines, and elite levels perform three routines. Because acrobatics is a partner sport it is a unique gymnastics discipline that is known for challenging athletes with life skills like teamwork, communication, and trust.
Acrobatic gymnastics has five categories: women’s pairs, men’s pairs, mixed pairs, women’s trios, and men’s fours.
Women’s Pairs involve two females (one base and one top).
Men’s Pairs involve two males (one base and one top).
Mixed Pairs are comprised of a male (the base) and a female (the top).
Women’s Trios have a female base, female middle, and female top.
Men’s Fours are comprised of four male athletes (a base, two middles, and a top).
