Fantastic Acrobatic Gymnastics at Gym Gala

December 24, 2011

Belgium has some of the best acrobatic gymnasts in the world. And every year, they perform as a group and individually at the Gymnastic Gala; this year they even showed their new routines for 2012 – very entertaining and excellently executed! Enjoy!

My favourite mixed pair at the moment: Laure de Pryck and Nicolas Vleeshouwers!

Here’s the highlight of the whole show, the group acrobatic – watch out, Spelbound! (YouTube)

Julie van Gelder, Ineke van Schoor and Laure Maes are a promising junior women’s group who really know how to dance. Click play or watch them on YouTube:

Last but not least Nikki Snel and Eline de Smedt with one of the best choreographed routines I’ve seen! (YouTube)

Gymgalas: Dementyeva, Ponor, Koczi and more

December 23, 2011

Belgium has one of the best gym galas (if not the best) in the world. They always invite some of the best rhythmic gymnasts, acrobatic gymnasts, normally they have trampoline, tumbling (not this year), “show acts” and, of course also artistic gymnasts. This year, Anna Dementyeva as well as Vasiliki Millousi (who replaced Jessica Lopez) performed floor, bars and beam (or better said: piano & beam ­čśë ). While Dementyeva fell at the Akasha Gym Gala on floor and twice on beam (here’s her fall-free┬ábar routine from that show) she got it right at the Gym Gala in Gent and entertained the audience with a beautiful floor routine.

Here’s Anna Dementyeva’s bar routine (or on YouTube):

At the very same show, Vasiliki Millousi performed on beam and the piano…

Meanwhile, Flavius Koczi proved why he is one of the best tumblers and twisters.

Here’s his floor routine (or on YouTube):

Another Romanian, comeback-queen Catalina Ponor, mixed it up a little bit at the Unive Gym Gala in the Netherlands and chose a unitard for her routine on and under the beam.

And if you haven’t seen this gala from the recent competition in Mexico with Ksenia Afanasyeva, Danell Leyva + Dad/Coach and many more in full length and in a good quality, you can do it now!
