ACROBATIC ARTS  NEW CLASS   1 Hour

WHAT IS ACROBATIC ARTS?

The Acrobatic Arts syllabus is based on true acro, preparing students to perform skills on a hard stage as part of a complete dance routine package, in 5 skill areas: Flexibility, Strength, Limbering, Balancing and Tumbling. 

The syllabus contains 12 levels with well thought out progressions that take students from the very beginning (skills such as forward roll and 'L' handstand) to advanced levels (skills such as Front and Side Aerials and Multiple Back handsprings). 

 

CERTIFIED INSTRUCTORS? 

The Acrobatic Arts Teacher Training and Certification program is designed to teach dance educators how to safely and effectively instruct AcroDance in the dance studio.  This program starts at the very beginning, teaching proper technique, safety, and spotting skills for AcroDance. Acrobatic Arts bridges the athleticism of gymnastics and the poise and grace of dance through the reinforcement of ballet, jazz, and lyrical technique.
