Class Description

Starbrite Studios is extremely proud to offer the Acrobatic Arts programme within its acrobatics classes. Created by a successful studio owner with decades of experience, Acrobatic Arts runs training and certification courses for dance teachers in the art of Acro Dance. The program is based on safe and effective progressions with proven results in five divisions of Acro Dance: flexibility, strength, balancing, limbering and tumbling. Developed with input from professionals and experts in ballet, modern dance, jazz, contortion, artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, sport acrobatics,yoga, acro yoga, pilates, physiotherapy, hand balancing and more, you will not find a more comprehensive programme. Simple, thoughtful progressions take the beginner level dancer from log rolls and summersaults to the advanced dancer tumbling effortlessly across the stage!

Acrobatic Dance, or acro as it is commonly referred to by dancers and dance professionals, is the beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Often defined by unique choreography, acro dancers seamlessly blend musicality, emotional expression, line and extension with acrobatic movements in a dance context.

Acro is an especially challenging style for dancers to master as training in both dance and acrobatic elements is required. Acro technique includes balancing, limbering, tumbling and partnering, based around flexibility, contortion and strength.

Dancers who train through Acrobatic Arts have balanced development, are stronger, more flexible and fearless.

Out students also have the option of taking part in exams, if they wish. The Acrobatic Arts examination process is designed to motivate dancers. Having defined and achievable goals is a proven way to motivate dancers to excel. Dancers work through twelve exam Level, each designed to create a well-balanced acrobat, including elements of flexibility, strength, balance, limbering and tumbling.
