Unlike gymnastics, acrobatics often employ the cooperation of more than one performer to create stacking and interlocking skills. The value of this training is recognized as a way to enhance flexibility and strengthen the dancer’s body. Requirements for this study are Jazz or Ballet. Suggested classes that will help further this style: Modern, Leaps & Turns and Capoeira.
