So apparently the Europeans will be around the corner (20 minutes drive from home) and the tickets are quite cheap. Now what is that sport and what should I watch?

It's a mix of tumbling elements, dance, and acrobatics. There are men's and women's groups, then male, female, and mixed pairs. I had a hard time finding individual numbers instead of whole parts of competitions, but this is what a women's group number is like:

That's more like aerobic gymnastics.

I didn't even know THAT was a thing until I went down a youtube rabbit hole a few months ago when I had really bad insomnia. I found the aerobic stuff a lot cheesier and harder to watch for any period time. Acrobatic is interesting in a WTF??? kind of way.

I found a pretty short clip of a compilation of some acrobatic gymnastics elements:

I also got really into acrobatic gymnastics when browsing youtube a while back - I think it's a lot of fun. The size disparity with some of these teams is pretty intense, even more dramatic than in pairs skating.

This is all new to me. When I first saw the term acrobatic gymnastics, I thought someone had just mixed up terms and meant to say artistic. Now I have to go check it out

Watched a couple of videos. I had not seen this before. Sort of a combo gymnastics and cheerleading stunts?

Incredible skill for sure!! Very impressed. My only concerns is the risk of serious injury............
