The name Acro is essentially short for acrobatic. Acro is a genre of dance which seamlessly fuses elements of lyrical gymnastics tricks, balancing, tumbling and jazz.
Students learn Acrobatic tricks such as handstands, cartwheels, chest stands, elbow stands, walkovers, side and front aerials, tumbling lines, partner tricks and more. There are ENDLESS benefits for dancers who take Acro training including increased flexibility, strength and stamina. At LT Dance Studio our Acro program follows the syllabus from the gold standard in Acro Dance education Acrobatique.
If you think Acro is something you might be interested in taking this season don’t wait to register. Once we get started we will continuously build and build on skills and development. Don’t wait until you see everyone else’s progress and then decide you’re going to start next season and end up having to play catch up to get to the same level. The sooner you start the further ahead you will be throughout the season.
HAIR: Hair is to be pulled back off the face every class. Students may choose any style but we recommend two french braids.
UNIFORM: A body suit and shorts (or leggings) must be worn to all Acro classes. We understand that all of our dancers come in different shapes and sizes, with that in mind we do not ask that all dancers conform to the exact same style of body suit. Varied styles may be worn, with any chosen sleeve length, best suited for the comfort of each dancer.
