Note on Acrobatics
Dance Creations' Acrobatics classes are delivered through trained and certified instructors who have many years of teaching experience. Miss Jen & Miss Jodi are certified through the Acrobatic Arts syllabus, which is a program based on safe and effective progressions in 5 divisions of Acro Dance; Flexibility, Strength, Balancing, Limbering, and Tumbling. Our class lengths allow enough time is given for each division and to ensure your child's safe training (45 minutes for Beginner, and 1-hour for levels 2+) . Acrobatics is NOT a recreational activity; therefore, it is important to be enrolled in at least one additional class for levels 2+.
