Acro Dance Lessons

Acro Dance Overview

Acro dance incorporates acrobatic movements into dance routines and is one of the more challenging dance styles to teach and to learn. We are proud and excited to teach acro dance classes in Vaughan at Performing Dance Arts. Acro dance emboldens our dancers to be physically fit, flexible, strong, and to contort their bodies in ways that may not be immediately comfortable. This, on top of being completely disciplined in the technical aspects of the dance form, makes it a challenging, yet rewarding form of dance that can take dancers to a whole new level.

 

Is Acro Dance Safe

Acro dance is safe, challenging, and takes a certain amount of flexibility and agility to perform. Acrobatic movements are taken from gymnastics and can include handstands, flips, handsprings, and cartwheels! It’s important to note, however, that gymnastics by itself does not qualify as dance; it’s only through correctly utilizing the techniques as rhythmic dance moves that gymnastics transforms to acro dance. Performing Dance Arts offers acro dance classes in Vaughan at recreational and competitive levels.
