Acrobatics Classes | Perth
All Ages Acrobatics Classes
Ever wanted to walk on your hands? Now you can. Acrobatics classes are ideal for those who want to perform spectacular stunts and enhance their overall strength, flexibility and balance. This high energy sport requires students to pull off ground and aerial stunts like tumbling, balancing, handstands and flips.
Students also memorise highly technical routines which involves interacting with their peers. For example, they may balance on a person’s shoulders or hold someone high up in the air. All of these routines are performed with tremendous beauty and grace while encouraging students to build vital team-building skills.
Weekly acrobatics classes are held at JMDC Perth for students aged 3 to 16 years old.
