Tween & Teen Classes

 

Acrobatics

Students will work on basic tumbling progressions: forward rolls, backward rolls, handstands, handstand drills, cartwheels, and round-offs. For students who are advancing quickly, they will begin to focus on more challenging tumbling skills such as back walkovers and multiple cartwheels up to aerials and other advanced tricks. We will focus a great deal on flexibility and gain a deeper understanding of the role flexibility plays in dance. Students should wear a leotard/crop top, dance shorts and bare feet.

 

Aerial Loft

Aerial silks is a type of performance in which one or more artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a fabric. Students climb the suspended fabric to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral their bodies into and out of various positions. Aerial silks may be used to fly through the air, striking poses and figures while flying. Aerial silks consist of one long piece of fabric attached in the middle to the ceiling to create two long tails. In this class you will learn to climb, invert in the air, and hang upside down. As your strength increases you will learn sequences, wraps, and drops that allow you to descend the fabric with style and grace!
