Chris Collins Dance Studio

Acrobatics

Acrobatic training teaches flexibility, contortion, balance, strength, muscle control, and above all, discipline and concentration. In an acrobatic dance, you can add dance elements from various disciplines to make the dance an expression of personality. A dancer will gain more flexibility and upper body strength. Acrobatics is an excellent way to learn spatial awareness, an important element in partnering and ensemble work.


Acrobatic Levels

At Chris Collins Dance Studio, we strive to provide the best dance education. Below you will find the Acrobatic classes that we offer for students ages 5 through 18. For students younger than 5 years old please visit our CCDS Younger Dancers for more information on tumbling classes (e.g., Combo Dance & Introduction to Dance). During the first few classes the instructor will be observing closely all dancers to ensure everyone is placed in the appropriate level. The Instructor along with the Studio Director will strive to provide the best education while instilling a love for dance. We look forward to seeing you in class!
