About the Style

Acro Dance classes offer a dynamic blend of gymnastics and jazz movements, designed to develop a wide range of physical skills and artistic expression.  Our Acro program is based on the Acrobatic Arts Curriculum, which focuses on Safely, Technique and Progressions.

Our program teaches flexibility, agility, balance, strength, muscle control, discipline & concentration. This class will focus on fundamental acrobatic technique and students will learn such things as handstands, chin stands, elbow stands, cartwheels, back bends, walkovers and balance.  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.  A great add-on for any dancer who is looking to perfect or show off their skills!

Class Attire

Gymnastic style body suits, or comfortable clothing such as leggings, etc. Baggy clothing such as hoodies can pose a safety risk so we ask nothing too bulky. No skirts. Barefoot is required. Hair should be in a ponytail or braid.

Our Acro class structure prioritizes skill mastery over age grouping, ensuring a tailored and effective learning journey for each student. We recognize that every child progresses at their own unique pace. Therefore, advancement to the next level is based on the individual’s proficiency in mastering the skills of their current level. This approach allows students to develop and refine their abilities in a supportive and pressure-free environment. Please contact the studio if you are unsure which level is appropriate for your child.
