Acrobatics

Acrobatics

Ages 7 and up (3/4 to 1 hour class)

Acrobatics is a dance class in which tumbling tricks are incorporated into the dance movement. Each class consists of a short ballet barre, stretching on the floor, and tumbling on the mats. Beginners will learn various rolls, bridges, cartwheels, and handstands. As the children progress, they will work on more advanced tricks such as walkovers, handsprings and aerials.

In order to prevent injury, the students must perfect the basic tricks before moving onto the more difficult ones. We work individually with each student and spot them until they have mastered a trick. Only then may the student safely progress at their own pace to a more difficult trick.
