Weekly Gymnastic Fitness: 10am Tuesdays

Intensive Acro Workshop:  12-1pm Tuesdays & Wednesdays, 1-2pm Fridays

Gymnastic Fitness/Acrobatics for Dancers

This is an intensive workshop for people who want to add skills to their repertoire. You must sign up for at least 2 classes a week to be part of this series.  3 a week is the best way to really learn these skills. 

Imagine walking into an audition where they ask you for your acro pass and instead of blindly improvising your way through, you confidently execute a solid, inspiring pass. Or, imagine showing up at an audition where they ask you to do lines while rolling over a table or falling off a chair and you know exactly how to do that safely and fluidly, when to breathe, when to flip & when to punctuate.

In this class you will polish the basic techniques of acrobatic skills like: rolls, cartwheels, pirouettes and twists on your hands even front and back handspring- if you’re at that level- and break them down to translate simple moves into personal artistic expression. Then you will learn how to apply them in dance sequences or character moments that you can offer at the right moment. In this advanced workshop you will also integrate theatrical props like chairs and tables; or working with text and monologues.

Sign up for this class to feel confident in acrobatic skills at your level.
