Acro is a form of dance that combines lyrical and traditional/contemporary forms of jazz with gymnastics, tumbling and acrobatic partner stunts. This class builds strength, flexibility and endurance.
GDSC’s Acro program consists of the following classes:
Our performance classes focus on Acro skills via two choreographed pieces for our December Recital and June Recital.
Acrobatic Dance 1 (Ages 7+): Thursday, 6:15-7:15 p.m.
Acrobatic Dance 2 (Assessment-based/Invitation-only): Thursday, 7:15-8:15 p.m.
Acrobatic Dance 2 is required for competition Acro dancers.
Acrobatic Dance 1 & 2 is a comprehensive two-level youth program, which combines partner acrobatics (acroyoga) and dance to create a dynammic technique-based class that meets weekly September-June. Students will receive training in flexibility, strength, solo acrobatics, partner acrobatics, musicality, sequencing and dance.
Please note: Though our technique classes do not typically perform, we may receive requests to do so and will therefore accommodate based off a majority need. Please contact admin or the appropriate instructor to confirm.
