Dance Moves III is an Acrobatic Arts certified studio. Our Acro instructors are trained to instruct students through progressions that are safe and controlled. The AA syllabus is separated into six different areas of acrobatics: tumbling, flexibility, strength, balance, contortion, and group/partner tricks. Our focus on education results in students that understand the progressions and feel confident in their abilities
Our classes are focused on safely building each the above six areas. This means that we do not make tricks a priority. Beginners in our classes will initially spend much of their time developing flexibility and strength in order to later achieve the bigger “tricks” as they move up in level. Acrobatic dance is different than gymnastics.
As dancers, the acrobatics discipline provides us with the tools we need to develop strength, flexibility, balance, and “tricks.” As opposed to gymnastics, dancers perform on unpadded stages, with seamless transitions, and in groups. There are also many technical differences between progressions within acro dance and gymnastics. If you are coming to DM3 from a gymnastics program, please understand that these are two very different disciplines
In order to focus on technique all year long, DM3 does not take any of our Acro groups to festivals. If performance opportunities are something you are interested in, our Acro classes perfectly complement our jazz and/or ballet disciplines.
If there is enough interest acro classes will have the opportunity to showcase their growth and knowledge at our Year End Recital in May.
