Acrobatics

IDF - Independent Dance Federation, added Acrobatics to there long standing dance syllabi in 2010,  this syllabus is much more focused on the incorporation of acrobatics into dance, not only teaching single tricks but movement aswell. It is also suited for both dedicated, hardworking pupils aswell as those doing it for the enjoyment only. 

  

Acro is based on the following:

- flexibility 

- balance 

- strength 

- tumbling

- transitions

- contortion

- musicality 

- team work

A basic class would be:

- 15 min cardio and muscle group warm up

- depending on the level, cartwheels and hand stands from the corner

- detailed warm up of specific muscles being used

- the tricks using those muscles taught  in detail

- split stretch

- cool down 

For safety reasons I put emphasis on warming up properly before  attempting tricks and do my best to educate the students of this aswell. I have yet to have any injuries in my classes and aim to keep it that way.

Group Classes as well as Private Lessons are available in all Styles.
