Silhouette of a gymnast.

Union's acrobatic gymnastics team travels throughout the Midwest and nationally, performing at churches, schools and other venues. Acro has less in common with the artistic gymnastics seen at the Olympics and is more closely related to cheerleading and circus gymnastics. The Gymnaires perform but they do not compete.

Membership on the Gymnaires team gives class credit and can apply toward health and human performance general education requirements.
