Breakout Dance Studio is excited to announce the addition of this fantastic Acro Program to our curriculum!
Acro Dance is an art form that incorporates the fluid movements of dance with the exciting tricks from acrobatics.
It is “gymnastics for dancers”, where students develop specific strength, flexibility and technique, to learn how to execute acrobatic tricks, to then be used in dance choreography.
The training students receive in their acro dance classes helps to reinforce the technique in all other dance genres.
Adding acro dance is next-level training that will develop a specific skill set, and creates well-rounded and versatile dancers.
Junior Acro Program
Our Junior Acro Program is for all beginner Acro students ages 7 on up. Students must be enrolled in a minimum of one hour of ballet or jazz class at Breakout Dance Studio in order to enroll in acro.
Our Junior Acro Program is where students will begin their journey in acro. They will develop strength, flexibility, stamina and confidence. All classes will be taught the same curriculum but will advance at different rates based on skill, age, discipline and mastering of their tricks, etc.
Students will master body positions, handstands, bridges, rolls, cartwheels, balances, walkovers and so much more!! The Junior Acro Program can take 1-3 years to complete depending on the age and skill level of each individual student. We will have a yearly in house testing day for students that are ready to progress on to our Intermediate Program.

This is a one hour class for our beginners ages 7 on up!

“We have dreamt of adding an acro program to our studio for years. When we found ADTA, we knew it was the perfect fit for our studio and the timing couldn’t be better! As a young and ever growing studio, this program will be an excellent addition to our students dance education and development!“
