Hard Work That Pays Off Over And Over Again
Acro Dance is a physical art form that incorporates the fluid movements of dance with the exciting explosive tricks from acrobatics.
It is “gymnastics for dancers”, where students develop specific strength, flexibility and techniques, to learn how to execute acrobatic tricks, to then be used in ACRO dance choreography.
The training students receive in their acro dance classes helps to reinforce the technique in all other dance genres.
Adding ACRO dance IS the next-level training that will develop a specific skill set, and creates well-rounded and versatile dancers."
