Acro dance blends classical and modern dance techniques with acrobatic elements. When practiced in doubles, this can include lifts, tosses, spins, partner balance poses and floorwork. Often acro dance incorporates elements of adagio, swing dance, salsa, modern dance and more. This class will be a continuation on our previous acro dance series and will cover some more dynamic beginner to intermediate moves and sequences, as well as storytelling, improvisation, and fluidity of movement with and without a partner.

Pre-reqs include familiarity with swallow and cradle.
Previous acro or dance experience is encouraged but not required. You do not need to come with a partner, however having a partner you feel comfortable moving and dancing with can make learning new moves easier and more comfortable.

Wear clothing that you feel comfortable moving and going upside down in. Loose fitting and flowy clothing can sometimes get in the way of moves.
