Full Year or 8 Week ACRODANCE

ACRODANCE is a style of Acrobatics used specifically for dancers.  It is a beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements.  Often defined by unique choreography, acro dancers seamlessly blend musicality, emotional expression, line and extension with acrobatic movements in a dance context.

Acro technique includes balancing, limbering, tumbling and partnering, based on flexibility, contortion and stength.  Acrobatic tricks such as handstands, cartwheels, chest stands, elbow stands, walkovers, side and front aerials and tumbling lines are some of the skills students will work to perfect throughout their acro training.  Trick movements are usually executed slowly to emphasize gracefulness, body lines and picturesque extension.  Acro Dance offers more depth and variety to choreography and creates a much more versatile dancer.

To master an AcroDance trick, students must develop a good foundation of strength and flexability, thus emphasis is placed on extensive condiditonaing and stretch and strength training.  Once a solid Acro foundation is acheived by dancers, it is surprising to see how quickly students acheive their Acro Dance tricks. With a steady and patient approach, students will acheive their AcroDance goals safely and effectively.

Miss Candace Kalwajtys is our certified ACRODANCE instructor!
