Acrobatic Arts (Acro Dance)

We will be launching new classes from September 2018 Acrobatics Arts!

Acrobatic Arts is a professional curriculum for acrobatic dance. It is the beautiful fusion of the artistic motion of dance and the athleticism of acrobatics. Acrodance is not the same as gymnastics. An AcroDancer must complete all of the skills on the hard stage without the advantage of a Sprung floor, while seamlessly integrating musicality, emotional expression, extension, control and line. The sprung floor allows the gymnast to complete much more difficult tumbling when compared to what is recommended in AcroDance. Skills taught in AcroDance might look the same as gymastics, but they are taught differently to compensate for the conditions. Neither the ‘AcroDance’ way or the ‘Gymnastics’ way are wrong but they are different.

Students will learn to how to increase their strength, flexibilty, endurance, balance, limbering, tumbling, basic contortion, and partner/group stunting. Students will also be able to take examinations in AcroDance.

Students must be in Year 1 (Primary Ballet) to participate in these classes. Students also must be enrolled into either Ballet or Modern preferably both.

Please do email to reserve your place for September 2018. Thank you.
