Acrobatics

Acrobatics is a fun class for students to gain strength, balance, coordination and flexibility. Students begin with strengthening and stretching, and finish learning balancing, limbering and tumbling. Students are placed in classes based on their age, experience and ability.

Junior – Senior Acro Technique

Junior – Senior Acro Technique classes focus on building flexibility and strength to improve student’s range of motion. They also prepare students for study in Acrobatic dance, which is beneficial to all disciplines. Instruction in balancing, tumbling and limbering are included. Students registered in Junior – Senior Acro are required to take either a Ballet or Jazz class to understand the dance fundamentals that apply to Acrobatic dance.

Students in Junior – Senior Acro are able to add on an additional Acro Choreography class. All students are prepped in this class for choreography for our final Recital and competitions. Students must be registered in the Acro technique class.
