Acrobatic dance is the beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Often defined by the unique choreography, acro dancers seamlessly blend musicality, emotional expression, line and extension with acrobatic movements in a dance context.
More recently Acro gained popularity with the wide spread success of the contemporary circus productions of Cirque Du Soleil. Mainstream media including dance television programmes like; ‘So You Think You Can Dance?’, ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’ and ‘Dance Moms’ have further fuelled it’s demand in amateur competitive dance and study settings.
Acro is an especially challenging style for dancers to master as training in both dance and acrobatic elements is required. Acro technique includes balancing, limbering, tumbling and partnering, based in flexibility, contortion and strength.
