Training

A high level acrobatic program needs excellent technique coaches and much preparation time before it is ready to be performed on stage. To become a competent acrobat, students must begin practicing the basic skills at an early age of only 6 or 7. Because the techniques employed in acrobatics are extremely difficult and risky, students must endure a good deal of pains for their gain. The training is long, hard, and intense.

Students go on stage when they are mature in skills
