What is Acro?

Acrobatics is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. It is defined by its athletic character, and its use of acrobatics in a dance context. This physically demanding class seamlessly blends dance and acrobatics through choreography and focuses on fundamental acrobatic technique to teaches flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control and concentration. You child will learn handstands, elbow stands, cartwheels, back bends, walkovers, balance and contortion tricks.

This discipline places emphasis on athleticism, agility, strength, control, flexibility and balance. We believe here at WADPA, that being an all-round performer, acro dance is very important to study and it also compliments other genres such as ballet and jazz.
