What is AcroDance?
AcroDance is the beautiful fusion of the artistic motion of dance and the athleticism of acrobatics. AcroDance is not the same as gymnastics. An AcroDancer must complete all of the skills on the hard stage without the advantage of a sprung ﬂoor, whilst seamlessly integrating musicality, emotional expression, extension, control and line. Skills taught in AcroDance might look the same as gymnastics, but they are taught diﬀerently to compensate for the conditions. Neither the ‘AcroDance’ way or the ‘Gymnastics’ way is wrong, but they are diﬀerent.
Why Acrobatic Arts?
Acrobatic Arts is a progressional system for teaching AcroDance. Through thoughtful progressions, teachers will introduce new skills as the dancer has trained his/her body for the skill and is ready for it. This greatly reduces the potential for injury, creates more technically correct work, and helps dancers to progress more quickly (in the long run)
The Acrobatic Arts program is designed to compliment your student’s dance program and thorough training in ballet is essential to success.
