This class is an excellent workout for all-around fitness and great for children of all ages! Including warm-up, posture, stretch, and flexibility exercises, students train and condition the upper, mid, and lower body. Beginning level students are taught basic skills including splits, forward/backward rolls, backbends, handstands, cartwheels, walkovers, and round-offs. Once the basic skills are mastered, students’ progress to advanced skills including handsprings, aerials, and tucks. Dancers benefit greatly from the body awareness, balance, and coordination learned in acrobatics classes. Class length is 45 minutes to one hour, and students are encouraged to advance at their own pace with individualized attention.
