Participants and their guardians agree to the following:
All of our Acro staff is either trained through the highly recognized Acrobatic Arts program or are seasoned gymnastics coaches with experience in spotting.
Acrobatic Arts runs training and certification courses for dance teachers in the art of AcroDance. The program is based on safe and effective progressions with proven results in five divisions of AcroDance: 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 program. Simple thoughtful progressions take the beginner preschool level dancer from log rolls and somersaults to the advanced dancer tumbling effortlessly across the stage!
By enrolling your dancer in Acro, you understand your dancer will participate in skills that may involve hands on spotting.
