The Dance Company is proud to be an Acrobatic Arts and Alixa Flexibility certified studio. Acrobatics combines the beauty of dance, the wonder of acrobatics, and the power of gymnastics in one exciting sport! Used throughout the dance world and gymnastics world, acrobatics is performed in professional productions such as Cirque du Soleil and many other reputable companies. Students will develop strength, flexibility, and control with an emphasis put on extensive conditioning. Students will learn to execute basics from a forward roll to tricks such as handstands, cartwheels, chests stands, needles, illusions, walkovers, aerials, and many more, and how those skills integrate into dance. Basic ballet technique is also helpful in developing your acrobatic skills.
