Acrobatics vs. Gymnastics. What to choose?
This is the most common question from parents when we mention that we offer acrobatics and gymnastics.
While the two are very similar, it’s the execution that makes them different. Both require the performance of extraordinary physical feats such as balance, agility, flexibility, and mastered motor coordination.
Gymnastics is an all-encompassing exercise program that incorporates strength, speed, power, coordination, flexibility, and balance. It is a demanding sport that requires immense perseverance and skills. Although it is advisable to start early, many children start in their teens and continue through college.
Acrobatics is a sport that develops strength, skill, and flexibility. Sports acrobatics help children strengthen their character, build stress tolerance, and improve focus. Most likely, no other sports is aimed so much at the harmonious upbringing of strength and flexibility. Acrobatics teaches kids to feel their bodies. Boys attending acrobatics classes become brave and independent, and girls become more substantial, gain flexibility and grace.
In short, both sports will strengthen the body, motor coordination, flexibility, but the significant difference is the approach and form of creative movement they are incorporated with when not performed alone. Both will be similar, some tricks will overlap, and then each has its own methods.
