Walkover to Acro Class: 5-6.30pm

Acrobatics teaches flexibility, balance, strength and much more. This class will focus on the technique to enable you to do the stunts you would want to do. You will learn handstands, Cartwheels, walkovers, balancing on a beam and so much more.

Acro Dance is an art form specifically for dancers. Acro has softer, more lyrical looking lines, with the emphasis being on lengthening “through” the tricks and holding pretty balances with interesting variations. In Acro, we teach our students to dance into and out of Acro tricks, with minimal obvious “prep” before and after a trick. Despite being technically difficult to execute, acrobatic tricks are meant to blend in seamlessly with dance steps, providing an extra level of excitement and flair to dance choreography.
