Our Acro classes are open to children aged 6+ years. Nikki is a certified 'Acrobatic Arts' teacher and will follow this syllabus with the opportunity for students to take exams if they wish. The class teaches flexibility, balance, strength, and muscle control. Acro is not the typical tumbling or gymnastics class. This class is great for children looking to enhance their agility, flexibility, & strength, learning acrobatic tricks that can later be added into dance routines.
The students will learn the basic acrobatic movements before moving on to more advanced tricks. This class will focus on skills including: handstands; cartwheels; head stands; standing backbends; front and back walk overs and round offs initially (with more advanced tricks being available for those students that can master these skills quickly as everyone learns at their own pace). Advancing to skills including: elbow stands, one-handed front walkovers, back handsprings, aerials and many more advanced tricks.
