About the class

Acrobatic Dance, or “Acro” as it is commonly known, develops a beautiful fusion between classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements.

Acro students are encouraged to attend dance technique classes to seamlessly blend acrobatic movements into a dance context with musicality, line, extension and emotional expression. Our Acro classes include limbering, balancing, tumbling, partnering and strength work.
