acrobatic art exams

This program is designed to promote excellence in tumbling, flexibility, strength, balance, contortion and partner/group stunting for dancers. Through this program, teachers will receive valuable teaching tools to assist in developing the muscle groups, flexibility, and technique required to perform tumbling and partner/group tricks on stage as part of a complete dance routine. Dancers will be inspired to excel, progressing through twelve levels. 

Dancers who train through Acrobatic Arts have balanced development, and become stronger, more flexible and fearless. Studios that implement this program often see dancers acquire more skills, suffer fewer accidents, and are less likely to develop chronic injuries. Each class will give your child a challenging cardio workout, as well as core and muscle strength training, effective flexibility, proprioception and agility training.

Students are able to work at their individual skill level. The one-year-per-level rule does not apply to Acro Dance. Students progress at different paces, working steadily at certain skills until they are achieved (see below). Our Acrobatic Arts certified teachers are trained to challenge every student adequately and fairly. Furthermore, students are given free time at the end of each class to allow them to work on any advanced skills they would like to achieve.
