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.

My girl has been attending Melody Bear classes (graded). The class teaches her simple movements and also helps her to widen her vocabulary as she could understand Teacher May's instructions in terms of moving her hands and legs, and moving around in class... Melody Bear class is also good in preparing children for ballet.
