This dynamic dance form combines Modern dance technique with acrobatic movements. Fun and energetic, this class suits children who are full of beans, as they will learn to dance on their feet and their hands!
The dance style has been made popular by Cirque De Soleil and more recently the TV programme 'Dance Moms'.
We teach the Acrobatic Arts syllabus which is based on safe and effective progressions and understanding of body placement and technique in five key areas: flexibility, strength, limbering, balancing and tumbling.
At each level, new skills such as handstands, cartwheels, bridges, backward walkovers, chest stands and front aerials are mastered and seamlessly integrated into dance routines.
Getting the basics right and developing strength and flexibility is the key to long term success in Acro Dance. Ultimately, Acro is a very rewarding dance style and is a thrilling ride, but it also takes a lot of practice, discipline and commitment from your child!
Chloe May has a background in gymnastics and is a fully qualified Acro teacher up to Level 6 (Acrobatic Arts). We are proud to be one of the few schools in the country to offer the fully structured and certified Acrobatic Arts syllabus at our Academy.
