About acro dance
Acro dancing is a unique genre of dance that encompasses an exciting mix of acrobatics and contemporary dance. It originated as a traditional Chinese dance but has since gained popularity from acrobatic and circus shows such as Cirque du Soleil.
Acro dance is comprised of athleticism, balance, limbering and tumbling, while increasing the body’s contortion ability, strength and flexibility. These elements help make you stronger which will help you refine your form and keep control, especially when holding your own body weight.
Unlike gymnastics, acro dance blends the dance and acrobatic elements seamlessly, without pause and without the help of a sprung floor. It can either be fast-paced and energetic or slow and expressive, but it is choreographed in a fluid dance style, where acrobatics and dance work together harmoniously.
What to wear to Acro Dance classes
For our Bradford acro dance classes, we suggest dressing as comfortably as possible while keeping the body streamlined. For our CC Dance Company acro dance class, we require you to wear your CC crop top or leotard with CC leggings, or if you’d prefer, a ballet or jazz uniform. We don’t advise shoes and suggest long hair is tied back in a bun or ponytail.
