Acrobatics & Acro Dance
About Acrobatics & Acro Dance
Acrobatics (commonly referred to as “Acro”) is the spectacular art of tumbling, contortion and balance. WAPS is an Acrobatic Arts certified studio, with the option to undertake examinations available for those students who wish to push themselves to fine tune their technique and try an exam. Acrobatic Arts is an internationally recognised syllabus, based on safe and effective progressions in flexibility, strength, balancing, limbering and tumbling. Dancers who train through Acrobatic Arts have balanced development, are stronger, more flexible and are fearless!
Toddler, Pre-Junior and Junior Acro Dance combines classical dance techniques with precision acrobatics moves. It is both athletic and creative, working on students’ flexibility, strength, acro and techniques! The classes are a lot of fun, and perfect for developing acrobats, or students who just love to safely perform tricks for recreation and fun.
Classes for older students involve an extensive warm up followed by a series of exercises to improve strength, flexibility, balance, control and agility. Students are streamed into Intermediate and Advanced levels to ensure they’re in the right class for their skill level. Mats will be used in class to support all students.
This class is guaranteed to be fun, exciting and challenging and is highly recommended for all dancers, especially those students looking to enrol into Cheerleading. Enthusiastic advanced-level students can also try out for our Advanced Acro Troupe!
