Here is what the Level 1 Individual Element routine from the draft Canadian Level system for Acrobatic Gymnastics looks like on paper. For those of you who are interested this is what we work from to create the routine you see in the video below. It is a 10 element routine created to develop all the aspects of an acrobatic gymnast: flexibility, strength, extension, tumbling, and presentation.

Here is a video of the Level 1 Individual Routine for Acrobatic Gymnastics basics. This routine was developed by Andrzej Cichalewski and Dmitry Belyaykov of the Gymnastics
Here one of the Oakville Gymnastic Club's, Provincial level Acrobats shows the Level 1 routine with a few modifications of her own, e.g. the 1st element rather than a stork stand is a Y-scale and she does 3 kick steps instead of two. This routine can be used with Recreational and Interclub groups to teach them the basic elements.

Here is another skill series for a fairly simple skill. High splits for a Women's Trio. First you would make sure your top can do the splits well. Then have them do this with the bases sitting or kneeling on the floor. Here the second base in a boy but this was just for training purposes. The spotters are Karl Warton and Toshco Pavlov, FIG Experts. The athletes are from two different Acro clubs in Portugal. These photos are from the FIG Level 2 course that took place November 2009.
