Acro & Tumbling Classes
On Pointe’s Acro program, which includes tumbling for younger students, combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. Acro dance is known by various other names including acrobatic dance and gymnastic dance, though it is most commonly referred to simply as acro by dancers and dance professionals (source: Wikipedia).
Classes offered include Acro (with classes based on skill level) and Tiny Tumblers (2 – 5 years of age).
- Girls: Leotard, biketard, or a snug top with capris that hit above the knees; no shoes (bare feet)
- Boys: A snug fitting tee and sweatpants (preferably not baggy; student must be able to move, but clothing cannot get in the way.)
Hair: Securely tied in a ponytail; if hair is long, needs to be put into a bun or other style that brings it above the shoulders for safety purposes.
