How to Do a Balance Beam Routine

Learn how to do a balance beam routine in this gymnastics training video from Howcast.


I'm going to teach you guys how to do a beginners balance beam routine. When you put together a routine on the balance beam depending on the level, again it changes with skills you have to use. But in general you have a mount. You have acrobatic flight skills on the beam, which could be a round-off, a cartwheel, a handstand.

Then you also have dance elements. You have full turns, jumps, any choreography that your coach might give you. You also have the dismount, which can be anything from a handstand pirouette. It can be a round-off or a front handspring. Any way that you can exit the balance beam and stick your landing and show it to the judges. Alyssa is going to demonstrate a very, very basic balance beam routine.
