We are so excited to be a newly certified studio with Acrobatic Arts, offering 2 new programs to our studio!
Our teachers have gone through an extensive certification program to provide a new and exciting Acro Dance program to our studio. We love how well rounded and progressive this program is and are looking forward to watching our students grow even more in their dance education. Join us for Acro Dance (Ages 6 and up) or Acro Dance Preschool (Ages 3-5).

“About the AcroDance PreSchool curriculum: This curriculum focuses on physical literacy. The focus of this program includes learning the acro positions, locomotive skills (jumping, hoping, etc), balance skills, classroom behavior skills, movement concepts, cooperation and social skills. The magic is in the repetition, the report cards, coloring pages, imaginary play, fun and games.”
We are so excited to be offering these 2 amazing programs at our studio this year, and we look forward to learning with your acro dancer! We hope you join us!
What goes into being Acrobatic Arts certified?
What is Acro Dance?
According to Acrobatic Arts, "AcroDance is the beautiful fusion of traditional dance and acrobatic movement. While performing, dancers should maintain an emotional connection to the movement, music and audience. Acro is not just a bunch of tricks...dancers who study AcroDance have improved balance, flexibility, stability and control. This piece choreographed and performed by Derek Piquette is an excellent example of Acro Dance!"
