Acro Dance 4 Week Series

February 24, March 3, March 10, March 17
3pm-4:30pm
$80 full series enrollment
$25 drop in to single class

 

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 cover beginner to intermediate moves and sequences, as well as storytelling, improvisation, and fluidity of movement with and without a partner. No partner or experience required, however some acro or dance experience is encouraged.

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.
