The event in artistic gymnastics performed on floor is called floor exercise. It is actually performed on a padded mat that lays out the available floor space and also provides a suitable exercise surface. Floor exercise routines last up to 90 seconds. The floor routine is choreographed in advance, and is composed of dance elements and of acrobatic elements such as turns, leaps, saltos etc. The moves that are choreographed in the routine must be precise, in sync with the music and entertaining. This event, above all others, allows the gymnasts to express their personality through the dance and musical style. Scores are based on difficulty, artistry, demonstration of required elements and overall performance quality.
