Acro Gymnastics is a fusion of athleticism of acrobatic and gymnastic elements merged into Dance. The dance movements in acro are founded in ballet, jazz, lyrical and modern dance styles. Acro is a subdivision of gymnastics, like rhythmic or artistic gymnastics.
The program from Kids to Advanced level is is based on safe and effective progressions with proven results in five divisions of Acro Gymnastics: Flexibility, Strength, Balancing, Limbering and Tumbling. Developed with input from professionals and experts in ballet, modern dance, jazz, contortion, artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, sport acrobatics, yoga, acro yoga, pilates, physiotherapy, hand balancing and more.
All students will start from the very beginning so they are able to progress safely and quickly from one level to the next. Dancers who train in Acro Gymnastics have balanced development, are stronger and are more flexible.
Dancers work through twelve exam levels, each level is designed to create a well balanced Arco gymnastic dancer. Acro Gymnastics Exams take place at the end of each level and are accredited by the International Acrobatic Arts Board of Examinations.
