AGES: 8 and up
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!
Students are placed in classes based on technical ability. Requirements for Acro II: back bend, bridge recover, kick over, and handstand bridge. All must be clean and consistent without the help of a spot or mat stacks. Should also have a solid headstand, handstand, and a good awareness of stacking. Requirements for Acro III: front walkover, back walkover, aerial (or incredibly close). Should also have a solid headstand, handstand, chest stand, forearm stand, and a solid awareness of stacking.
