Acrobatic Dance (Acro) is the fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Often defined by unique choreography, acro dancers seamlessly blend musicality, emotional expression, line and extension with acrobatic movements in a dance context.
Acro gained popularity with the wide spread success of the contemporary circus productions of Cirque du Soleil. Main stream media including dance television programs like ‘So You Think You Can Dance’, ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’ and ‘Dance Moms’ have further fuelled it’s demand in amateur competitive dance and studio settings.
In this class pupils will learn things like cartwheels and roly poly's to more advanced techniques including balancing, limbering, tumbling and partnering, flexibility, contortion and strength. We follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus to ensure fun and safe progressions.
