The newest of the gymnastics disciplines, this fast, eye-catching sport can be performed individually or in groups, mixed or single sex.
Routines are performed wearing trainers to energetic music on a wooden sprung stage 7m x 7m (10m x 10m for Groups).
It offers a great challenge to the gymnasts' fitness. It tests their cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, and power as well as demanding a high level of co-ordination and rhythm.
Throughout the routine gymnasts must appear enthusiastic and up beat and demonstrate a high level of skill combined with complex aerobic dance steps.
Skills are selected from each ‘family' of elements presenting dynamic and static strength, flexibility, balance and jumps.
