Best Answer

The equipment used in gymnastics is there is a vaulting table always about 100- 135 centimeters off the ground. On bars the men use one parallel metal bar. The women use two uneven bars made of wood. Also for bars women and men use grips that they put chalk on to say put on the bars. For floor you use a spring floor to make the tumbling easier. For beam women use a long "beam" that is 4 in. long. Men do not do beam.

What should you do dance or gymnastics?

Why not both!? Dance will help you with gymnastics, and gymnastics will help you with dance! Gymnastics is more of a mental sport, and if you decide to quit once you move up levels and it gets too hard, you can always do dance! Trust me, if you want to do gymnastics, at the minimum take a few ballet classes. They will help you gain flexibility, pointed toes and straight knees as well as your artistry in gymnastics. If you have enough money, I advise you to take dance and gymnastics.
