What is Acrodance?
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!”
For all circus and acrobatics classes, students must wear tight fitting clothing (a leotard and knee-length or full-length tights preferred). Uniform items can be ordered from the studio!
Hair must be in a bun or plait for medium to long hair and ponytail or bun for short hair. These requests are for safety purposes as loose clothing or hair may get caught in the apparatus and tear. No rings, bracelets or necklaces please
