What is Acro Dance?

Acro Dance is a beautiful fusion of the artistic motion of dance and the athleticism of acrobatics.  It is not the same as gymnastics.  An Acro dancer must ultimately complete all of the skills on the hard stage without the advantage of a sprung floor - although mats are used in training.

 

We teach to the Acrobatic Arts syllabus, which is a professional curriculum for acrobatic dance and is designed to promote excellence in flexibility, strength, balance, limbering, tumbling and partner/group stunting for dancers.  Acro Dance can be a great addition to many other forms of dance.  If you watch Dance Moms, you will see how well Acro Dance works within a teacher's choreography.

 

Our Acro Dance classes are held on Wednesdays at Church Crookham Community Centre.
