Acro Dance Classes

acro-dance-class.jpg

Acro classes will have a strong emphasis on strength, flexibility, muscle control, concentration, and tumbling. Our Acro classes are not the typical/standard tumbling or gymnastic class. Some tumbling skills students will learn include, but not limited to headstands, handstands, cartwheels, round offs, back bends, limbers, and walkovers. The goal for this class is to perform the skills in a dance routine, and be incorporated into other dance routines.

These classes will NOT participate in the recitals until full mastery of the Acrobatique Junior Level. An end of year showcase will take place at the end of our season.

*Please note that even though we have ages listed below, our classes are divided more on skill level. This decision will be made by the teacher.

Ballet Classes
& Pointe

Students will learn classical ballet techniques and terminology starting with ballet positions of feet and arms, as well as placement, and body alignment. Each class includes barre work, stretching, center floor work, and across-the-floor combinations. The ballet curriculum is based on a combination of the Vagonova and Cecchetti methods. As students progress through each level, curriculum will become increasingly more complex and intricate. After students meet requirements, pointe is offered at the discretion of their ballet instructor. All students are urged to study ballet, as it is the foundation of all dance styles and will help further their success in all other styles.

Dancers are taught to connect with their surroundings, the music, and build awareness of their own bodies.

Hip Hop is a high energy, upbeat dance style comprised of street dance, funk, and jazz. This class will focus on musicality, isolations, and coordination. Students are encouraged to step outside the box, and bring their own individual styles and personalities to the movements. Hip Hop requires students to have strength and stamina to successfully perform moves. Class will include an intense warm-up and conditioning, progressions, center work, and combination pieces. Expect to work hard, but have a lot of fun while listening to Hip Hop, Rap, and R&B type music.
