Acrobatic Arts Dance Classes
Dance School Lincoln
Acrobatic Dance, or acro as it is commonly referred to by dancers and dance professionals, is the beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements.
Often defined by unique choreography, acro dancers seamlessly blend musicality, emotional expression, line and extension with acrobatic movements in a dance context.
More recently, acro gained popularity with the wide spread success of the contemporary circus productions of Cirque du Soleil. Main stream media including dance television programs like ‘So You Think You Can Dance’, ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’ and ‘Dance Moms’ have further fuelled it’s demand in amateur competitive dance and studio settings.
Developed with input from professionals and experts in ballet, modern dance, jazz, contortion, artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, sport acrobatics, yoga, acro yoga, pilates, physiotherapy, hand balancing and more, it really is a brilliant syllabus to follow. Simple thoughtful progressions take the beginner level dancer from log rolls and summersaults to the advanced dancer tumbling effortlessly across the stage!
Acro is an especially challenging style for dancers to master as training in both dance and acrobatic elements is required.
Acro technique includes balancing, limbering, tumbling and partnering, based in flexibility, contortion and strength.
