Acrobatics & Stretch

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.


Pre-Primary Acro

A new class introduced for our 4 – 5 year olds! A great introduction for children in the world of Acrobatics. This class uses imagery, stories, music and rhythm to help create movement awareness and teach important skills for tumbling. This class works well with the Combination 1 & 2 program.

Class – 60 minutes once a week

Primary Acro

A continuation on the skills taught in Pre-Primary Acro. Students will work on stretching, strengthening, balancing, and Acrobatic elements. This class is recommended with the Combination 3 & 4 program.

Class – 60 minutes once a week


Junior – Senior Acro

Starting at the Junior level, the Acrobatics class will be split into two parts: Stretch & Strength and Acro Tumbling.

The Stretch class has a focus on building flexibility and strength to improve student’s range of motion. It also prepares students for study in Acrobatic dance, which is beneficial to all disciplines.

The Acro Tumbling class may be added. Instruction in balancing, tumbling and limbering are included.  Students must be registered in Stretch to participate in the Tumbling class. The Acro Tumbling class will be held immediately after Stretch.
