Acrobatics, or Acro as it is commonly referred to, is the fusion of dance technique and the athleticism of acrobatic elements. Skills taught in Acro classes are important for all dance styles as they help build balance, strength and flexibility. Students will also have the opportunity to learn tumbling skills such as cartwheels, handstands, walkovers, aerials and many more.
At Aspect Motion School of Dance our Acro classes are taught by highly qualified Acrobatics teachers in a safe and encouraging environment. We teach using the Acrobatic Arts syllabus which is focused on providing artistry and a high standard of excellence and safety in developing balanced, strong and skilled acrobatic dancers. We also offer optional Acrobatic Arts exams for students who wish to further excel in their Acrobatics training.
Our classes are divided into levels based on syllabus and ability/experience to ensure that your child will develop in a safe environment.
Private lessons are also available.
Please speak to Miss Tracy or Miss Shardée for more information regarding Acro classes for your child.
New in 2023, TUMBLING, the perfect bonus class for all Acro students!
Our tumbling classes will provide our Intermediate to Advanced Acro students with more time to practice and perfect a range of their favourite tumbling skills utilising our dedicated Acro equipment. From rolls, twists and flips to handsprings, front/side aerials and a variety of tumbling variations (including partner tricks).
Tumbling is a high energy, action filled class where children develop spatial awareness, agility and strength in a safe tumbling environment. Each class starts with the fundamentals of tumbling, followed with specific skill development tailored to each child’s goals, and ends with some free tumble time.
It is highly recommended that Tumbling is taken in addition to an Acro class to ensure that students build necessary foundational skills across all areas of Acrobatics.
Currently open to students enrolled in Acro 5, Acro 6, Senior Acro and Advanced Acro in 2023. Expressions of interest are encouraged for students in Acro 1 & 2 and Acro 3 & 4. Please speak with Miss Tracy or Miss Shardée if you have any questions.
