Run by Excite Academy

Acro dance is a modern style of dance that combines acrobatics and dancing. In these classes, students will learn classic gymnastics and acrobatic skills that have been specifically formatted for dancers.

Our classes focus on three different things: strength, flexibility and tricks! Students will learn acrobatic tricks such as splits, handstands, cartwheels, walkovers, partner balances and basic tumbling moves. All of these tricks and the strength and flexibility element are combined together to create dances to fast or slow music that incorporate jazz and contemporary/lyrical.

At Excite Academy, we follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus where students are grouped by ability starting with primary level and continuing from 1 to 6. Students will be assessed prior to joining an acro class to determine what level group they should be in. Throughout the year, students are given opportunities to perform their skills and if they would like, complete examinations.

Because our acro classes (as well as most other dance styles) come with a risk of injury, students must come wearing tight fitting clothing (leotards, singlets, leggings, bike shorts, etc.) that is comfortable and fits well. They must also come with hair tied up and out of their faces (preferably in a bun so that they do not accidentally slip on it while in a handstand, etc.). We also ask that no jewellery is worn. They must have bare feet during the class. These rules ensure that the risk of injury is reduced as much as possible. We also ask that parents understand and consent to the physical contact between the teacher and child as it is a large portion of teaching acro dance and will help to ensure the safety of your child during tricks.
