Acrobatic training teaches flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control, and above
all, discipline and concentration. Basic tumbling skills can be an added bonus for
any dancer. A limbered, agile body is of great benefit for all styles of dance.
First Stage is an Acrobatics Arts Certified Studio with Qualified teaching staff.
We have introduced this fantastic new syllabus into our Acro classes which are
split into 4 classes to accommodate all ages and abilities.
First Stage classes include limbering and body conditioning. Following on from
the stretching we add tricks and tumbles e.g. splits, balances (hand, chest, elbow),
walkovers, cartwheels, leaps and partner balances and tricks.
For those in our advanced level class we work towards the more tumbling side of
acro such as side aerials, front aerials and back handsprings as well as having very
secure and strong acrobatic work.
In our large studio area we have ample foam mats, crash mats, springboard and
stretch equipment on which to practise.
Our Acrobatics classes, suitable for all ages over 4 years, are on a Saturday. Please
see latest timetables for further details
Please see Tammy in our onsite shop, First Gear, for the correct First Stage uniform
for Acro. It is important for safety reasons that hair is neat and tied up for this class.
This is a very popular non-examination class and we operate a waiting list system
when the classes are full.
