Beginners are Always Welcome!

Acrobatic Dance and Circus Style Acrobatics are a unique twist on the usual styles of dance. Acrobatic Dance, is both an athletic sport and a performing art which offers a dazzling array of unique skills and personalities to the audience. The most visible display of Acrobatics can currently be seen in the world-famous Cirque du Soleil.

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.

In our syllabus-based acrobatic classes, students will study exam pwork in Term 1 and move into preparation for our recital performance throughout Term 2.

Recommended Additional Classes: Stunting & Tumbling, Jazz and/or Ballet

We also offer Advanced Acro classes such as StuntingTumbling and Contortion for the more serious acrobat!
