Acrobatic Dance or Acro as it is commonly referred to by dancers and dance professionals, is the fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and the athleticism of acrobatic elements. With the introduction of choreography, Acro dancers have the ability to blend musicality, emotional expression, line and extension with acrobatic movements in a dance context.
Acro has gained more popularity recently with the success of “So You Think You Can Dance", "Dance Mums” and “Britains Got Talent”.
At Alexander’s we are certified Teachers with the Acrobatic Arts Association.
