A beautiful art form combining dance, tumbling and contortion. A strong emphasis on building strength and flexibility is a focus in this class. At this level a separate class in Lyrical, ballet or Jazz is required for those who would like to continue. To adequately bring this group to the next level in there training it is vital to have a focus in both dance and acro and there is not adequate time to train in both in the one hour we had in past beginner Acro classes. Thank you.
