2011-2012 Xtreme Acro Team & Coaches
Acrobatic Gymnastics (also known as "Acro") integrates the grace and beauty of dance, the balance and strength exhibited in gymnastics, with the magnificance of teamwork not shared with any other sport in the USA Gymnastics family.
Groups of two to four athletes reach new heights in gymnastics by performing dynamic, flight and balance skills, seemingly defying laws of physics and human movement. Acrobatic Gymnastics challenges the athletes' physical ability, while instilling in him or her the profound and lifelong values of trust and teamwork.
