2-3yrs (parent participation required)
Acro Dance is an amalgamation of gymnastics and dance.
Kinder Acro is the foundation division of the Acro Dance syllabus. It teaches students from the ages of 2-4 years the basic requirements, knowledge and skills needed before they progress to the Pre-Junior division, which is aimed at children aged 5 and above.
Within the class the students learn a range of core skills and balances such as rolls, jumps, cartwheels, handstands and traveling steps. Students/parents get to track their progress by collecting the achievement postcards of a trick or skill. These are called “Skill Awards”.
Flexibility is a huge part of Acro, within in session the students will stretch and bend to increase their body mobility. The Kinder Acro division is the perfect time to start building and increasing your child’s flexibility as their body is supple, this is all performed in a safe and monitored environment. If you wish to stretch at home, then please make sure you speak to the teacher to make sure you are implementing the correct technique.
The Junior Division is a 3-4 years development programme split into Division levels 1-3, based solely on ability and skill. A student must be 6 years or older to start the Junior Division programme. Students progress through the three divisions to complete the overall Junior Division Award. After gaining the Junior Division the students can then develop skill further in Intermediate and Advanced Acro Dance divisions.
Acro Dance is an art form that incorporates the fluid movements of dance with the exciting tricks from acrobatics. It is “gymnastics for dancers”, where students develop specific strength, flexibility and technique, to learn how to execute acrobatic tricks, to then be used in dance choreography.
The training students receive in their acro dance classes helps to reinforce the classical technique in all other dance genres. Adding acro dance is next-level training that will develop a specific skill set and creates well-rounded and versatile dancers.
