ACRO DANCE AND MODERN JAZZ
BRITISH THEATRE DANCE ASSOCIATION AND ACROBATIC ARTS
Dance allows people to discover, explore and develop their natural instincts for movement, enabling students of dance to develop not only their motor skills but also their mental and emotional personalities.
What is Acro?
Our Modern Acro Theatre Dance classes promote co-ordination and stamina and contain exercises to strengthen, extend and loosen the body and increase flexibility. Acro Dance is an art form specifically designed for dancers. Acro has softer, more lyrical-looking lines than floor gymnastics, with emphasis on lengthening “through” the tricks and holding beautiful balances with interesting variations.
The focus is on seamlessly blending acrobatics with dance, and avoiding obvious preparations before each trick. With the added element of Acro, students can learn acrobatics to add into their dance routines, starting with simple stretches and balances working towards more advance moves and tumbling as they progress.
At the academy classes start from Pre-School age and continue through until adult. We follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus, are fully certified in teaching Acro dance and we are an official AcroPad centre so we can always offer the best to our students.
