Structure of the class:
This is a fusion of dance technique, athleticism, agility and strength through acrobatic skills that are seamlessly incorporated into dance choreography. Mixing classical ballet and jazz techniques with fluid movements and tricks such as cartwheels, aerials, handsprings, backbends and the splits. AcroDance is a physically demanding style that requires you to build great strength, control and flexibility.
Children will be taught and trained in skills such as flexibility, strength, and control to perform tricks, balances, and tumbling. Each class will begin with a warmup to target the different muscles and ligaments in the body that will be used during the class. Strength and conditioning training to build up the strength, technique and stamina to execute the tricks or moves plus flexibility and limbering coaching to prevent injury during the class and to work towards achieving and maintaining the desired shape and movement needed. This is then combined with stylised choreography and music to create a visually impressive routine.
They will work on basic skills including splits, bridges, lever holds, headstand, elbow stand, handstand, handstand forward roll, fish roll, tornado, backward roll to handstand, handstand to bridge, forward walkover, back bend & kick-over, back walkover, cartwheel, cartwheel with 1-arm, round-off and side aerial.
