West Adelaide Acrobatics & Dance
TINY TUMBLERS - Acrobatic Arts (Ages 3 to 5yrs)
A fun filled class of energetic movements on the floor and across our acrobatic mat. We do some songs to age appropriate music, warming up, stretching, progressions across the room including donkey kicks, bear walks, skips, marching, galloping and basic turning skills.
At first, they will be successful at circle learning while progressing to travelling in straight lines and waiting their turn. Visual bright coloured station cards are used to assist the student in replicating the position or action successfully.
The children will love working through their report card, collecting stickers and being rewarded with certificates. At the beginning of class parents/carers and their children can together march into the room to meet on a magic mat. We then encourage the children to wave goodbye.
We do recommend that children are potty trained and out of nappies and are able to separate from mum for the class.
Acrobatic Arts (Ages 5 to 12+)
Have an active child? Acrobatic Arts combine physically challenging acrobatic movements and dance. Great for boys and girls, it’s designed to promote excellence in flexibility, strength, balance, limbering and tumbling.
Kids learn in a safe environment to flip, perform walkovers, back bends and cartwheels, all under the supervision of a qualified trainer. You can also choose to join in an exam process through an accredited syllabus which gives a great sense of achievement to our little ones.
The levels begin at primary through to level 12. The children will have progression cards they work through to achieve each skill in each level. Once our students have mastered the skills in their level they move up to the next allowing them to develop their skills at their own pace.
It is preferred but not compulsory that for this class students are taking another technical dance class
