What is Acro?

AGES 5+

 

Acro dance, short for acrobatic dance, is a unique and physically demanding style that combines classical dance techniques with acrobatic elements. Originating in the early 20th century, acro dance has roots in circus arts and ballet, gaining popularity through vaudeville and competitive dance circuits. This style is known for its seamless blend of dance and acrobatics, requiring strength, flexibility, and coordination for movements like handstands, aerials, and tumbling passes.

 

At the School of Dance, our mission is to introduce students to acro dance through a comprehensive curriculum that emphasizes technical skills and historical context. We provide a supportive environment where dancers can develop their agility, strength, and artistic expression. Our program focuses on mastering acrobatic techniques while teaching the evolution and significance of acro dance. Acro dance complements our hip hop and break dancing programs, providing a versatile foundation for all dance styles and supporting competitive gymnasts in enhancing their skills. By integrating historical knowledge with practical training, we ensure that students gain a well-rounded understanding and appreciation of acro dance.
