WHAT ACRO-DANCE IS:
As the world of dance continues to change, we are seeing more flexible dancers incorporating acrobatic elements into their routines. This class will progress your dancer through levels that help her increase her flexibility and gain the strength needed to safely and correctly perform acrobatic and tumbling skills. This is a unique program. It is focused on safety and excellence in technique. The levels are designed to allow students to progress only when they are physically ready. This ensures that your daughter’s body remains healthy and minimizes the potential for injury. Instructors certified through “Acrobatic Arts” teach classes.
WHAT ACRO-DANCE ISN’T:
Acro-dance is not the same as gymnastics. A dancer must complete all of the skills on the hard stage without the advantage of a sprung floor. While some of the tumbling skills might look the same, they are taught differently to compensate for the different conditions. Acro-dance teaches tumbling movement that can be seamlessly integrated into choreography in your child’s dance classes.
