Acro is an impressive genre of dance, which incorporates elements of gymnastics, jazz, tumbling, and basic contortion. To master an Acro trick students must develop a good foundation of strength and flexibility. Thus, emphasis is placed on an extensive
conditioning and stretching portion of the class. Trick movements are usually executed slowly to emphasize gracefulness, body lines and picturesque extension. Students learn Acrobatic tricks such as handstands, cartwheels, chest rolls, elbow stands, walkovers and aerials.
