Our acro classes at All That Dance are very popular, but it is important all students are in the correct level for ability to provide safe weekly classes so please follow the guidelines below and check with your teacher.
GUIDELINES FOR ACRO LEVELS
It is important to comply with level requirements for the AcroDance classes. These classes focus on flexibility, strength, balance, limbering and tumbling through appropriate progressions for age and ability. Students are encouraged, as with all classes, to work outside of lessons to see progress. All AcroDance classes require students to be comfortable stretching and doing various strength exercises, as well as being on the hands for the majority of the lessons. Teachers will progress students to the next level when they feel the student is ready.
