NEW! This Season... ACROBATICS IN DANCE
IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ACRO PROGRAM,
A STUDENT MUST BE ENROLLED IN 1 OR MORE REGULAR DANCE CLASSES.
Sound Motion Dance Academy has revamped its Acrobatics Program for the Upcoming Dance Season to better train our dancers in the art of acrobatics. Our Acrobatics in Dance Classes are supplemental classes that will allow dancers to work an entire season on flexibility, contortion, tumbling and stunting without having to take time away from training to learn a recital performance routine. Acrobatics in Dance is not a typical tumbling or gymnastics course. Sound Motion Dance Academy's Acro Program is centered on fundamental acrobatic technique to increase flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, endurance, timing, body awareness, self-discipline and confidence. Here at Sound Motion we do not consider Acro a dance class, but utilize Acro to help supplement a Dancers repertoire and technique, creating well-rounded and educated students.
It is our hope, with the additional time to hone technique and skills, that dancers will be able to take what they learn from these supplemental classes and apply them to other genres of dance in their other performance-based classes.
Our Acro Program is a leveled curriculum for students ages 5 - 19, with each class working progressively through a vast repertoire of tricks and skills from the beginning level thru advanced and pre-professional. In addition, because we are a Dance Studio, we also feel the importance of each class building on your students core technical education and therefore incorporate many dance styles into our Acrobatics In Dance Classes.
Director or Instructor approval is needed for registering for these classes.
Placement is based first on a student's ability to retain and execute the required skills for each level and then on age. A student's ability to progress through each level successfully is based on attendance, as well as the ability to retain and comprehend technical terms.
