This class will also include coordination and social exercises, such as the Hokey Pokey, Follow the Leader, and the “Freeze” game.
ACROBATICS: If you love to somersault, cartwheel, and perform tricks, this is the class for you. Acrobatics will improve your flexibility and strength, and you will have a great time. Acro is for all ages and we work at each student’s individual level. We’re working on the basic forward roll up to the back tuck. Enhance your dancing by learning aerials!
