Cirque Intermediate

Recreational Gymnastics

Expand on the fundamentals built in Beginner Cirque with a focus on growing technique, conditioning, and broadening creative expression. Acrobats continue work on trapeze, fabric, hand balancing, partner work, and object manipulation while expanding vocabulary in acrobatics, aerial, and juggling, and working to increase stamina, strength, and flexibility. Independent, pair, and group work increase self-awareness and confidence. Coach evaluation required.

Experienced coaches carefully developed our curriculum with progressive skills that allow gymnasts to advance through each level safely. Because we focus on rewarding individual character development as much as physical skill achievement, we rely on evaluations to test your gymnast’s current skill mastery to ensure they are in the right level class. Evaluations take place throughout the session to provide thorough, consistent feedback to parents and gymnasts about their progress through our curriculum.

To ensure your gymnast is in the proper class level, a coach evaluation is required prior to registration. The evaluation will test their mastery of the following skills:

  • Slip Knot: Upside down straddle, drop to cross, straddle, hook one leg, single stag to scorpian, diaper roll drop, double straddle drop, gazelle, thread the needle, candy cane, box
  • Single Foot Tie Tricks: Single foot tie on ground, single foot tie in the air, cocoon, pike hang to split, sitting angle, arch forward, candy cane, sail, gazelle
  • Double Foot Tie Tricks: Double foot tie close to the ground with assistance, splits (both sides), upside down straddle, prayer pose
  • Drop Prep Skills: Straddle ups on the ground (10), star from the ground, upside down criss cross, hip key from the ground
  • Other: Regular climb, russian climb, wrist locks (various positions), wrist locks to birds nest, running wings, tornado spin
