WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF
ACROBATICS AND DANCE!
Acrobatics and dance are beneficial to boys, girls, kids, and adults of all ages. Competing on the competition floor or performing on the stage can keep your body trim, give grace and poise to all your movements & provide a sense of accomplish-ment. It can increase your appreciation of music, art, & all movement forms. The most valuable benefit of a good acro-batic and dance education is the acquisition of self-discipline. In addition being involved in acrobatics & dance enhances ones self-esteem, self-confidence, & self-worth. Furthermore, students are encouraged to set goals & strive to reach them. Involvement in dance and acrobatics is also linked to higher academic success! All of these qualities are very important in shaping a well rounded individual.
Classes are offered in ballet, tap, modern, jazz, tumbling, tram-poline, & acrobatic gymnastics. Pre-School dance classes for 4-6 year olds & Creative Movement classes for 3-4 year olds enhance vocabulary, attention span, gross motor development, coordination, and self-discipline.

Dance is a performing art- “to live is to dance- to dance is to live life to the utmost.” After a degree of proficiency is achieved; performing opportunities will be given. A performing group from Dance Arts is available for civic & charitable group functions. However, class time is better spent learning to dance rather than learning a dance. The best way to assure student progress is by having regular attendance. Acro students will have opportuni-ties to enter competitions throughout the season
