Acrobatics

The acrobatics classes teach students the acrobatic elements that are required for an acrobatic dance routine.  This class is focussed on the technical aspects of acrobatics, not dance routines.

A range of fundamental acrobatic skills are taught including basic tumbling skills, handstands, forward and backward rolls, cartwheels, round offs and handsprings.  Students are then able to progress to advanced skills such as walkovers, front and back somersaults, back flips and aerials.

Developmental work in strength, coordination, balance, body posture and flexibility are also a focus in this class to ensure the body is capable of these skills and to assist in building confidence in the body’s abilities. Students are encouraged to  progress at their own pace in a safe and fun environment.

Acrobatics is becoming increasing popular in amateur competitive dance as well as in professional dance theatre and in contemporary circus productions such as those by Cirque du Soleil.

I've been attending dance classes here since April, and what started out as a mere for-fun tryout with a coupon has turned into something I look forward to every week. Initially it was just a weekly KpopX dancerobics class, and eventually I signed up for 4 more dance classes to make it a total of 5 classes, 3 days a week. Some people may call it crazy, but when you have great instructors like May and Gene who encourage even the most inexperienced beginners while making dance lessons fun, it's hard not to come back. Lessons are fun and a good way to challenge oneself, and are a great way to keep fit! I would definitely recommend dance classes here, and it's definitely something I plan to continue doing!Congratulations to the team on the new venue, you guys are the best! :)
