The nationally acclaimed Acrobatic Arts curriculum is used in Acro classes as well as our PreSchool Ballet/Tap/Acro and Mini Jazz/Hip Hop/Acro classes. In these lessons, dancers will gain strength and flexibility by progressing from basic tumbling skills to walkovers, aerials, various handstands, and other acro-dance tricks. Integrating tumbling and acro elements into your dance repertoire will make your dancing more dynamic!
