Acro

acro dance studio toronto north york

Acro dance is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements.

It is defined by its athletic character, its unique choreography, which seamlessly blends dance and acrobatics, and its use of acrobatics in a dance context.

It is a popular dance style in amateur competitive dance as well as in professional dance theater and contemporary circus productions such as those by Cirque du Soleil.

This is in contrast to rhythmic and artistic gymnastics, which are sports that employ dance elements in a gymnastics context, with each being regulated by a governing gymnastics organization and Code of Points.

Acro dance is known by various other names including acrobatic dance and gymnastic dance, though it is most commonly referred to simply as acro by dancers and dance professionals.

Acro is an especially challenging dance style for dancers as it requires them to be trained in both dance and acrobatic skills. Acro dancers must be in excellent physical condition as well, because acro is a physically demanding activity.
