Acro technique includes balancing, limbering, tumbling and partnering, based in flexibility, contortion and strength.  In this class, students will learn balance, increase flexibility, and develop their core and upper body strength.  Classes will start with a floor warm-up, proceed to strength development, then it’s to the mats for tricks such as straddle rolls, bridges and cartwheels.  

This class will offer our dancers the opportunity to learn tumbling and contortions that can cross over into other disciplines.  Acro is a blend of acrobatics and gymnastics, connected through dance technique.  Students will learn many tricks, including tumbling skills, contortions and balances.
