We are very excited to be introducing AcroDance to Alexander’s now we are certified Module One Teachers with the Acrobatic Arts Association.
WHAT IS ACRO DANCE?
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”.
Acro is a challenging style which is the fusion of dance and gymnastics. To master Acro Dance students need to train in both elements to gain the Acro technique which includes Balancing, Limbering, Tumbling, Partnering, Flexibility and Strength.
Acro Dance is taught by Dance teachers as they already have the artistic requirements and extension that dance demands enabling them to teach the skills fundamental to Acro dance.
BENEFITS OF LEARNING ACROBATIC DANCE
Dancers who train through Acrobatic Arts have balanced development, are stronger, more flexible and fearless. Through Acro dance the dancers will gain more skills and are taught how to perform these skills on a hard stage.
ACROBATIC ART EXAMINATION SYLLABUS
There is a syllabus with 12 exam levels each designed to create a well-balanced acrobat, including the elements of flexibility, strength, balance, limbering and tumbling, the syllabus is designed to motivate dancers.
ACROBATIC SHOW ROUTINES
Like with the Theatre School, pupils who attend Acrobatic Arts will be included in the School’s Bi-annual production and hopefully other extra performing opportunities.
We will be holding Acrobatic Art Workshops during the Summer Break – dates to be confirmed.
Please inquire within for class days and times as classes are set on the ability of the student (not age of the student as our other classes are set).
