You Will Need
- Low balance beam
- Beam shoes (optional)
- Mats (optional)
- Spotter or coach (optional)
Warm your body up with stretches.
Use a low balance beam that is close to the floor. Practice walking back and forth on the beam without losing your balance.
Walk on your tip-toes
Walk across the beam on your tip-toes and practice your balance by keeping your hands on your hips and moving forward as you place your toes down on the beam.
Add new moves
Gradually add new moves to your practice as your confidence increases. Start with cartwheels and then move on to more complex moves.
Train off the beam three to four days a week, toning your body and improving your flexibility. Practice balance beam moves three to four times a week to improve your balance and skills.
