Dance Acro Classes

Introducing acrobatic elements makes dancing even more awesome

classes for kids from preschool right up to advanced level

About Dance Acro

Acrobatic Dance, or “Acro” as it is commonly known, is about creating a beautiful fusion between classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Acro is about seamlessly blending acrobatic movements into a dance context with musicality, line, extension and emotional expression.

The purpose of Acro is to train students how to incorporate acrobatic elements 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.
