Acro- (Ages 9-Up)
This class we have required for our company dancers, but has been growing ever more popular each year. Dancers have become such athletes in recent years, with moves that require awesome physicality and strength, that it would be difficult to do without this class. We have opened it up to all our serious dancers wishing to increase their flexibility, strength, and agility. Many dancers also play sports or do other activities that would greatly benefit from more flexibility and strength, which also prevents injuries as another added benefit. They can work their way up to tumbling and some other great gymnastic skills.
Creative Movement and Combo Classes
Our Creative Movement Program and Combo classes are designed specifically for the development and limitations of Pre-schoolers to kindergarten. It emphasizes movement and motion, rhythm, coordination skills, proper muscular development, and some Pre-Ballet basics. Use of props such as scarves, balls, lumi sticks, and other items help keep the kids interested and facilitate their skills.
