Acrobatic Arts

This internationally acclaimed curriculum was developed by Mandy Yip and is offered at HPNC through our partner, Kenwood School of Ballet. Acro Dance is based on safe and effective progressions with proven results in five divisions of AcroDance – Flexibility, Strength, Balancing, Limbering, and Tumbling. Developed with input from professional experts in Ballet, Modern, Jazz, contortion, artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, yoga, Acro, Pilates, physiotherapy, and more, you will not find a more comprehensive program. Simple, thoughtful progressions take the beginner preschool level dancer from log rolls and somersaults to the advanced dancer tumbling effortlessly across the stage!
