Benefits of Acro Dance
 

  • It is a new approach - Acro is a new blend of dance styles. It combines classical techniques with acrobatic skills. While all dance is physical, this form is particularly athletic and has unique choreography due to its use of acrobatics in a dance environment.

  • Strength - Acro dance classes will improve confidence and coordination, and also build core strength for all those that participate. Upper and lower-body strength is needed in higher level Acro, the acrobatic elements and aerial stunts that are common in routines require performers to have the muscle strength to support themselves, as well as partners sometimes. Acro dance lessons will help student strengthen their muscles, often without them even realizing it.

  • Flexibility and Balance - Acro dance lessons are great for increasing flexibility and balance. Dance types like ballet and Acro require great flexibility and balance to carry out the movements in routines. The more flexible your child is, the better range of motion they’ll have with their muscles.

  • Confidence - Learning routines and mastering difficult steps builds confidence with all students when they attend Acro Dance classes. All dance styles increase confidence in students as they grow, develop and overcome challenges but it’s no secret that higher level Acro takes a little extra effort and finesse to conquer.

  • Coordination - Acro dance classes are the ideal option for those looking to improve their overall coordination. The acrobatic element of this dance takes an incredible amount of discipline and coordination to learn. Memorizing intricate choreography and moves like cartwheels, chest stands, hand springs, and hand walking will promote excellent levels of coordination.

  • Self-Expression - Acro dance lessons can give students a creative outlet. They’ll be able to express themselves through movement and learn how to channel their energy into positivity. This is a fantastic coping mechanism for all students to develop.
