The aim - to substantiate and experimentally test the method of teaching gymnastic exercises to students engaged in sports aerobics. 

Material and methods. The study involved 20 students of Kharkiv institutions of higher education engaged in sports aerobics in groups of sports improvements. At the time of the experiment, the subjects were 17 to 20 years old. Method of research. Theoretical analysis and generalization of scientific and methodological literature; analysis of rules and videos of competitions; pedagogical experiment; expert evaluation; methods of mathematical statistics. 

Results. As a result of the study, a method of teaching and improving the technique of performing gymnastic exercises for students of higher educational institutions specializing in sports aerobics was developed. It is proved that the introduction in the educational and training process of students engaged in sports aerobics, special exercises that gradually lead to the implementation of gymnastic elements, and at the same time partially develop the necessary physical abilities contribute to their more effective assimilation and improvement. In particular, the execution quality control all gymnastic exercises (emphasis angle flairs out with 360° rotation; emphasis high angle; planche apart the legs; sagittal balance with the grip on the leg and rotate 360°; libel spin with the prop hands on the floor) in the experimental group, unlike the control, increased on average by 50%. 

Conclusions. Thus, the paper highlights the main groups of gymnastic elements provided by the current rules of competition in sports aerobics. The method of training students specializing in sports aerobics to perform these elements is developed. Experimental verification of the effectiveness of the developed technique was carried out.
