Here at Footlights, we have a wide variety of equipment which enables us to teach

children the fundamental skills of core gymnastics. 

 

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.

Our acro gymnastics classes, not only teach pupils the core skills of gymnastics,

but acrobatic tricks  which are not covered in core gymnastics.

These classes will follow the IDTA gymnastics dance award syllabus.

Levels start from preparatory, through to stage 10, progressing to medal tests and children will receive their awards once they have passed each level.

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.

Students can learn to develop their acrobatic tricks, such as handstands, cartwheels, rolls,

chest stands, elbow stands, walkovers, side and front aerials and tumbling lines.

All acro gymnastics classes will be working towards their gymnastic rosette awards.
