Acro

Acro is a style of dance that combines classical dance techniques with precision acrobatic elements. A popular dance style, seen mainly in Cirque du Soleil®, Acro is becoming more popular in dance competitions nationwide. An especially challenging dance style, it requires dancers to be trained in both dance and acrobatics. Acro contains many style sub-categories and strong partnering components, as participants work together in small groups or in pairs to perform tricks, flips, and lifts. Tumbling teaches dancers solo tricks such as somersaults, handsprings, and aerials. Contortion, an unusual form of physical display which involves dramatic bending and flexing of the dancer’s body, is added to the mix thereby allowing flexibility-gifted Acro dancers to take their tricks to a whole different level. Dress Code: form-fitting clothing allowing for easy, free movement and flexibility.
