Here at Footlights Dance Academy, we have a wide range of equipment which enable's us to teach children the fundamental skills of core gymnastics.
With the use of our equipment children will be able to learn & develop basic core gymnastic skills such as forward and backward rolls, cart wheels, handstands, balancing moves, technical jumps and lots more.
Gymnastics is an ever progressing sport, in that once a basic level has been achieved, all children can strive to reach higher levels of gymnastics, with new skills such as forward and backward walk-overs, round-offs, handsprings and linking sequences.
Acrobatic gymnastics gives children improved flexibility and confidence, and with their new learned skills this will work together with their current dance classes to enhance each individuals potential & improve their own dance ability & performance.
Further progession with our Acro Dance & Tumbling, which combines the skills of acrobatic and rhymic gymnastics with contempoary and lyrical dance.
Over the course of each term, children will be working towards their rosette awards.
