Acro at Maples Academy of Dance

 

Acro dance combines athletic acrobatic elements with dance elements and choreography. While it incorporates gymnastic elements, it is not a gymnastics class. Instead, dancers in Acro learn unique balance, tumbling, and partner skills that they can combine with dance choreography to create fun and entertaining performance pieces.

The Acro program at Maples Academy of Dance is led by Miss Shauna, a former National level gymnast and gymnastics coach. Training in acro helps dancers build strength, flexibility, body awareness, advanced movement patterns, and confidence.  There are two levels of acro classes at Maples Academy of Dance – one for entry level and developing acro athletes, and one for more advanced skill sets.

Acro pieces at Maples Academy of Dance are always a crowd pleaser, with eye catching movements, fun concepts, and creative choreography. On the competitive stage, Maples Academy of Dance’s acro pieces have been recognized with judge’s choice awards for their clean execution of acro elements.

Do you have a dancer who likes to turn upsides down? Maybe a dancer who wants to push his or her limits by adding acro skills to their list? Register for acro today!
