Acro dance is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with fundamental acrobatic technique. It teaches flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control, discipline & concentration. Students will learn such things as handstands, chin stands, elbow stands, cartwheels, back bends, walkovers, balance & contortion tricks. In acrobatic class elements from ballet and jazz will be incorporated to help create a well-rounded artistic experience.
Leaps and Turns is a supplemental class where dancers can focus on improving the technical facet of their movements. Dancers registering for this class should have a sustainable knowledge of dance fundamentals and terminology. It is designed to concentrate on the mechanical aspects of proper pirouette placement and leap structure while focusing on strengthening a dancers core, spotting, and flexibility. This will be a non-performing class.
The minimum entry age is 8 yrs old with at least 2 years of dance experience in technical classes such as Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary & Modern Dance.
** This class is not offered every year. *** This 2015-16 season it is included in the HG Company class time.
