We strive for students to master their beginner and advanced beginner skills in order to be moved to this class. The Intermediate class is designed to slightly increase the training intensity placed on students while allowing them to continue to progress at their own pace. New skills are introduced and skills previously mastered in beginner classes are polished. Placement in this class is done though class evaluations.
Major skills required for promotion to the Advanced level include (but not limited to):
Vault: Arm circle straight jump, handstand free fall
Bars: chin up pull over, 3 cast back hip circle, front cut introduction
Beam: 3/4 handstand on low beams, pivot turns, cartwheel dismount from knee
Floor: vertical handstands, step hurdle cartwheel, backward pike roll, bridge/backbend kick over down wedge mat
