Acrobatic Arts Camp
This workshop is designed for any dancers age 6+ who want to take thier acrobatic technique to the next level! This program is designed to promote excellence in flexibility, strength, balance, limbering, tumbling, and basic contortion.
*This program will be divided by level depending on registrations. Times are subject to change depending on the number of students interested. Class size is limited!
Classes will be taught by Acrobatic Arts Certified Instructor: Miss Heather
AcroDance is the beautiful fusion of the artistic motion of dance and the athleticism of acrobatics. It is not the same as gymnastics. A n Acro Dancer must complete all of the skills on the hard stage, while seamlessly integrating musicality, emotional expression, extension, control and lines. Through thoughtful progressions, teachers will introduce new skills as the dancer has trained her body for the skill and is ready for it. This greatly reduces the potential for injury, creates more technically correct work, and helps dancers to progress more quickly (in the long run). Students will receive a progression chart and be evaluated to see which AcroArts level they are at currently. This process is designed to motivate dancers with achievable goals as a proven way to help them excel.

This weekly class is limited in size and will have 2 levels:
Level 1 is open to any dancers with some acro experience.
Level 2 students are required to have a standing back handspring and a round-off back handspring.
Tumbling encompasses acrobatics and helps dancers build confidence, strength, flexibility, and stamina through more advanced movements/tricks. We will help our students learn how to transition their tricks safely onto the dance floor as apposed to only on a gymnastic sprung floor.
All Tumbling classes will be taught by Dana Thomas! Dana has over 28 years of experience and is AACCA Certified and USAG Safety Certified.
