Is called acrobatics to the exercises and the pirouettes (somersaults or cabriolas) that perform the acrobats . An acrobat, on the other hand, is an artist who develops a routine where he shows different abilities linked to balance, strength, concentration and jumping ability.
For example: “My son was amazed by the stunts he saw last night at the circus”, "The final acrobatics of the trapeze artist was shocking", "Marta spends her stunts practicing".
It can be said that acrobatics are a combination between art and sport . Several millennia BC there were people who performed acrobatics in public, often for ritual purposes. Over time, acrobatics began to be associated with entertainment and fun.
While human beings usually require many years of intensive training and a talent that allows us to perform impressive stunts, many animals move around their surroundings with great skill naturally, performing jumps, running at high speeds, climbing trees and climbing mountains as if it were Actions simple.
In the case of acrobatic gymnastics , the stunts concretely become a sport where athletes compete with each other and receive various scores. Competitors must perform different stunts, accompanied by music that allows them to develop their choreographies.
In colloquial language, any acrobatics is called action what does a agility and skill demonstration for the realization of coordinated movements: "With an acrobatics, LeBron James managed to score in the last second of the game and gave the victory to his team".
He singing It is one of the areas outside of gymnastics in which a form of acrobatics can also be seen. It is understood by vocal acrobatics to any sung melody that exhibits great difficulty and that only the most gifted or best trained people can sing from a technical point of view.
Let's see below some of the elements that can be considered parts of vocal acrobatics, and that we do not usually find in popular music, except for a few people with a great natural talent:
* jumps : when a song requires joining two notes that are at a considerable distance, we talk about jumps. For example, an octave jump occurs when we sing a do and the next or the previous one without a silence in the middle. In some works of baroque opera, there are jumps of more than an octave, which were usually written for castrated singers;
* coloratura : This term is very broad, as it is used to refer to the ornamentation of the sung music, as well as to name the works or those who perform them. A coloratura singer, therefore, is able to make various types of ornaments with his voice, such as trills, glismands, chromatisms and jumps of great length with relative ease and speed;
* notes above : in the extension of a lyrical voice, there are several records, such as the bass, the middle, the treble and, in the most virtuous singers, the overdraft. These notes, which are usually only associated with female voices, have a great impact on the public, given their high number of vibrations per second. When a free cadence includes a colorature passage and ends in an oversize, it is possible to say that it is an example of acrobatics vocal .
The aerobatics finally they are risk maneuvers Aircraft pilots perform at exhibitions. These shows are usually performed with special airplanes, whose characteristics are appropriate for this class of flights: "Tomorrow there will be a show of aerobatics and fireworks at the military base of Punta Sur".
