Acrobatics or “Acro” is a combination of dance and gymnastics and has become more popular by the famous Cirque du Soleil. The dance disciplines used to create the dance routines in Acro are founded in ballet, jazz, lyrical and modern. Basic Acro stunts such as handstands, elbow stands, chest stands, cartwheels, walkovers, handsprings and aerials will be introduced in this class, and the dancers will work towards improving their strength and flexibility. Dancers will move onto more difficult stunts with teacher’s approval.

Recital/Costume:     The teacher will decide if this class performs in our recital but we usually just use our class bodysuits for a costume.

Dance Wear:      Please refer to Dance Attire for required dance wear for this class.
