Acrobatic Arts is the comprehensive program developed by the worlds professionals in dance, yoga, flexibility, hand balancing, contortion and more, who came together to make a safe training system suitable for dancers. Acrobatic Dance originates from China and then vaudeville and has been made more popular to be seen through all genres of dance from television shows such as 'So You Think You Can Dance', 'The Next Step' and 'Dance Moms'. It is an extremely difficult skill to train in, requiring many elements to ensure the skills can be achieved. The Acrobatic Arts training ensures safe and correct training. The program incorporates 5 sections in which the students train: strength, flexibility, balance, limbering and tumbling. There is the ability to take examinations if required and there are 12 levels in total. Levels Primary, 1-8 and then pre-professional levels.
At Dragonflies Dance we have 2 qualified professional instructors and have classes from age 4 and up on Mondays and Saturdays. We have held examinations in the past with excellent results and students have used their acrobatic skills in dance routines performed in our bi-annual shows. It is a fantastic skill that helps all other areas of dance training immensely and has helped our current students to achieve more in their other dance classes.
