Acro

About the Style

Acro is the combination of gymnastics and dance movement.  In Acro, we teach our students to dance into and out of Acro tricks, with minimal obvious “prep” before and after a trick. Despite being technically difficult to execute, acrobatic tricks are meant to blend in seamlessly with dance steps, providing an extra level of excitement and flair to dance choreography. This program teaches flexibility, agility, balance, strength, muscle control, discipline & concentration. This class will focus on fundamental acrobatic technique. Students will learn such things as handstands, chin stands, elbow stands, cartwheels, back bends, walkovers and balance.  A great add-on for any dancer who is looking to perfect or show off their skills!  Our Acro class placement is skill based rather than age based.  Once our students have mastered the skills in their level they move up to the next allowing them to develop their skills at their own pace.   Please contact the studio if you are unsure which level is appropriate for your child.
