Acro is the short name for Acrobatic Dance. It is the combination of dance technique with acrobatic skills. Acro differs from gymnastics as the acrobatic skills are taught to fuse seamlessly with dance skills and combine musicality, expression, line and acrobatic skills with smooth transitions. This is an area of dance that is quickly developing and acrobatic skills are becoming a requirement for professional dancers
Acro demands and teaches flexibility and strength and the technique includes balancing, limbering, tumbling, contortion and partnering. At Strive our teachers are certified in the Acrobatic Arts syllabus. This class provides a fantastic opportunity for those students wanting to add a few “tricks” to their routines.
