Acrobatic Artistry: Level 1

Sample Video

The “Dance: The Cutting Edge – Acrobatic Artistry Level 1” video continues to lay the foundation for all future acrobatic work. The students are introduced to more than 50 new skills! Students are introduced to various progressions down the mat, such as Monkey Jumps and Elephant Walks. They will work on more advanced balancing skills, such as Tripods and Elbow Stands, Backbend Tower Stunts, Elbow Tick Tocks, Tailor Rolls, Bridge Variations, and Front and Back Limbers. Every move builds upon all they learned in the “Primary Acrobatics Vol. 1” video. Using our “Acrobatic Artistry” series, alongside our “Extreme Stretch and Flexibility”, “Boost n’ Bounce”, “How-To Tutorial”, and “Ultimate Conditioning” video series’, will craft you into the strong and able dancer you wish to be!
