Dance Acro Classes

Edinburgh, Roslin, Kirkliston & South Queensferry

What is Dance Acro?

Acrobatic Dance, or “Acro” as it is commonly known, is about creating a seamless fusion between classical dance technique and the athleticism of acrobatic elements. Acro is about training students to seamlessly blend acrobatic movements like walkovers, tumbles and aerials into dance routines. To get the full benefit of Acro, students should attend a dance technique class such as Modern, Jazz or Contemporary alongside their Acro class.
