Acrobatic Arts is based on safe and effective progressions with proven results in five divisions of AcroDance: Flexibility, Strength, Balancing, Limbering and Tumbling. Developed with input from professionals and experts in dance, contortion, artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, sport acrobatics, yoga, acro yoga, pilates, physiotherapy, and more, you will not find a more comprehensive program. Simple, thoughtful progressions, take the beginner, preschool level dancer from log rolls and summersaults, to the advanced dancer doing back handsprings, and ariels effortlessly across the stage! This is a great stand-alone class for boys and girls, and is also a fantastic addition to any dancer’s advanced training.
