Acro Information

Rehersals are held on Saturday from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM in the Sharon studio.
We use the words Acro, Gymnastics, and Tumbling interchangably. They all refer to the same thing.

"Close Cues" means move quickly. In solos and follow ups you should be stepping onto the mat as the person before you steps off of the mat. Do not wait for them to get off of the mat completely. In running tricks you should start your run as the person before you is starting her takeoff.

If you can not make a mandatory rehearsal please notify Ladonna immediately!

If you can not be at a mandatory rehearsal send a stand in. The stand in will be expected to know which numbers you are doing and write down your spike marks. The stand in does not have to be able to do gymnastics or know the routine. You are responsible for getting your spike marks from your stand in.

Spike marks are the numbers and letters that are on the mats. They are to let you know where to stand on stage. Write them down when we assign them to you and remember them.

If you have any questions please ask Ladonna. (724) 734-6526.
