Acro dance is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. It is defined by its athletic character, its unique choreography, which blends dance and acrobatics, and its use of acrobatics in a dance context.[1] It is a popular dance style in amateur competitive dance as well as in professional dance theater and in contemporary circus productions such as those by Cirque du Soleil. This is in contrast to acrobatic, artistic and rhythmic gymnastics, which are sports that employ dance elements in a gymnastics context under the auspices of a governing gymnastics organization (such as FIG) and subject to a Code of Points. Acro dance is known by various other names including acrobatic dance and gymnastic dance, though it is most commonly referred to simply as acro by dancers and dance professionals.

Acro is an especially challenging dance style for dancers as it requires them to be trained in both dance and acrobatic skills.

Beginner class for our youngest dancers. This class is a shorter time and costs half of the normal tuition fees per month. In this class the dancers will be learning the basics of each genre, learning proper technique, class styled discipline, choreography, and flexibility. With this curriculum template, we use a reward system for attentiveness and learning.

The You & Me Kid is a very basic introduction to a dance class, as it is intended to be a first dance class for our littlest learners. The You and Me Kid class is a parent and toddler class, so parents are in the room doing the dances alongside dancers.

We start class with a name rhyme for each student, then move into 20-25 minutes of guided dance songs (think wheels on the bus, head shoulders knees and toes, etc.). At the end of class, dancers are given the opportunity to participate in an acro-style obstacle course or play with their peers.

We utilize props and movement throughout class, as well as review simple rules and directions that she will see in combo classes in the future (sit on your dot, wait your turn, etc.) It is a great introduction to our independent, hour long combo class as it gets the dancers comfortable with being in a dance class environment.

Beginner class for our youngest dancers. This class is a shorter time and costs half of the normal tuition fees per month. In this class the dancers will be learning the basics of each genre, learning proper technique, class styled discipline, choreography, and flexibility. With this curriculum template, we use a reward system for attentiveness and learning.

The You & Me Kid is a very basic introduction to a dance class, as it is intended to be a first dance class for our littlest learners. The You and Me Kid class is a parent and toddler class, so parents are in the room doing the dances alongside dancers.

We start class with a name rhyme for each student, then move into 20-25 minutes of guided dance songs (think wheels on the bus, head shoulders knees and toes, etc.). At the end of class, dancers are given the opportunity to participate in an acro-style obstacle course or play with their peers.

We utilize props and movement throughout class, as well as review simple rules and directions that she will see in combo classes in the future (sit on your dot, wait your turn, etc.) It is a great introduction to our independent, hour long combo class as it gets the dancers comfortable with being in a dance class environment.
