Acrobatic training teaches flexibility, balance, strength, discipline, and concentration. A dancer will gain more flexibility and strength to achieve skills thru safe and progressive training. Dancers will learn through games, drills, and techniques to develop their skills. Acrobatic movements can include handstands somersaults, headstands, and cartwheels, bridge, walkovers and more! The goal is to place Acro skills into a dance routine, therefore blending artistry with athleticism.
For this level dancers need to be able to push up into a bridge without a spot and hold for 10 secs, can go from standing down to a bridge on their own or with a spot, do a forward roll(no heading touching mat) handstand with good form, even if not able to hold, and a proficient cartwheel one one side, hold plank for 25 secs. We will work safely from this base of skills.
This is not a beginner/open level class,and is geared for dancers with prior dance experience, please email if in doubt about level.
Individual exercises will be given to fit their ability as students will have different needs and may be ready for more advanced skills.
It is strongly recommended that students are enrolled in one other class to support dance technique/development and coordination at this level. Ballet, HipHop, or Thurs. DanceFusion excellent 2nd class options.
