ACROBATIC GYMNASTICS CLASSES
Acrobatic Gymnastics combines the skill of a gymnast, artistry of a dancer and the courage and excitement of an acrobat! It is a dramatic visual discipline popular with spectators, with routines choreographed to music and including partnership work. Gymnasts work closely together, building up trust and responsibility for each other and developing skills in balance and dynamic elements as well as floor skills, tumble, flexibility and body conditioning.
These classes are an introduction to general and acrobatic gymnastics. Gymnasts work in small groups by age and ability with highly qualified and experienced coaches. Gymnasts aged 5 (or P1) to Age 7 attend a 1 hour class work to achieve badges on the Scottish Gymnastics Award Scheme. Gymnasts aged 8 to teens take part in the annual Club Championships. The Gymnasts can transition from this group into the competition groups at Astro. All classes have the opportunity to take part in our annual display – ASTRONOMICAL – at the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh.
WHAT TO WEAR – Gymnasts should wear a leotard and shorts with leggings or tracksuit to warm up in, with bare feet and jewellery removed. Shorts and t’shirt are ok to start with but a leotard must be worn once a gymnast is registered.
SESSION COSTS – The fee for gymnastics classes is £6.00 for a 1hr class, £8.50 for a 2hr class. After an initial 2 weeks pay as you go you can sign up to a block or monthly standing order. All Astro members pay £10 per year membership and must register with Scottish Gymnastics by their third week, at a cost of £17.
