Acro – dance is a fusion of classical dance & acrobatics. This unique style of dance combines classical dance technique with acrobatic elements using smooth transitions between the different movement types. The dance movements in acro are founded in ballet, jazz, lyrical and modern dance styles. Acro is defined by its athletic character and its unique choreographies.
In class, we will focus on strength, agility and flexibility. Hreyfiland’s teachers have helped to design a plan for the semester. There is no need for previous experience in any kind of dance or gymnastics. Our teachers will focus on helping each and every participant as much as they need.
