Welcome to Acrobatic Arts, a professional curriculum for acrobatic dance.
This program is designed to promote excellence in flexibility, strength, balance, limbering, tumbling, basic contortion, and partner/group stunting for dancers.
What is AcroDance?
AcroDance 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 incorporating musical expression, extension and control. A sprung floor allows a gymnast to complete much more difficult tumbling skills when compared to what is recommended in AcroDance.
What does the Program Cost?
