Acro

Acrobatic dance is the fusion of classic dance technique with precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. This challenging dance style includes balancing, limbering & flexibility (stretching), strength, tumbling and partnering. The roots of Acro are in traditional Chinese dance, which has gained popularity with the widespread success of contemporary productions such as Cirque du Soleil.

Please note: Dancers may only take Acro if they are registered in another dance class.

Acro classes will continue to be technique classes only as we continue to build a strong base in this complex technique.

We highly recommend Acro to dancers and any athletes who wish to improve their game performance. This technique develops overall body control, flexibility and balance which is crucial to all physical activity.

As Acro performances are the fusion of acrobatics and dance technique, students must be enrolled in at least one other dance discipline, to be considered for the performance class.

Did you know? Acro has also gained popularity in dance studios across North America due to the incredible benefits students attain from increased flexibility to upper body strength and control which lend to exceptional dancers in all other dance styles!

We follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus with step-by-step progressions for each level. Students learn proper placement and basic technique to progress safely, competently and confidently through each level.

Important to note: Students are required to wear a bodysuit (optionally jazz shorts and/or footless tights). Please refer to the dance code.   NO shoes are required. Hair MUST be in a bun or french braid(s) for safety issues.
