Our recreational programs are a perfect spot for students to learn the fundamentals of Acrobatic Dance. Students work on their flexibility and strength before attempting their tricks with experienced, qualified spotters and instructors. Basic tricks such as Splits, Backbends, Rolls and Cartwheels are introduced immediately after obtaining the proper strength for support. Participants also learn the basic fundamentals of multiple acrobatic balances such as Head, Chest, Elbow and Hand Balances. Front and Back Walkovers are introduced once the participants obtain the Backbend and Recovery consistently which then prepares them for more advanced skills while applying new and interesting variations to the basics.
