ACRO Placement Classes 2018 - 2019 Season
Our acro classes are more popular than ever and we want to ensure that each dancer is placed in the correct level based on their ability and not necessarily their age. We are offering a FREE acro class and acro placement class for any dancers that will be participating in our acro classes during the 2018-2019 dance season. Dancers who are enrolled in our AcroDance Preschool program (ages 3-5) and Acro Primary (ages 5 & 6) do not need to attend. The schedule is as follows:
ACRO Class & Placement Classes:
Thursday, August 30 OR Thursday, September 6
*You only need to come to one day of these sessions*
3:45pm - 4:00pm | Stretch (Level 1-3) - optional but suggested
4:00pm - 4:45pm | ACRO Class (Level 1-3)
4:45pm - 5:30pm | Placement (Level 1 - 3)
5:15pm - 5:30pm | Stretch (Level 4 & Up) - optional but suggested
5:30pm - 6:15pm | ACRO Class (Level 4 & Up)
6:15pm - 7:00pm | Placement (Level 4 & Up)
Important Information | What You Need To Know:
You DO NOT need to attend both dates - please choose the Thursday that works best for your schedule and come that day. You must attend the acro class and placement class for your level. The stretch time beforehand is optional. If you can not make it for the stretch, please come ready and warmed up for class.
If you are unable to come to either of these sessions - thats ok! You may stay enrolled in your current acro class (with instructor permission), and our instructors will assess you during the first 3 weeks in September. After the 3 weeks, our instructors may keep you in the class, or move you up or down a level depending on your ability.
These classes are free and fun! You do not need to register in advance - just show up on the day of your choosing. All acro dancers are encouraged to attend - even if you were suggested a level/class at our Open House in April.
Please wear a leotard and tights - please ensure that they roll-up so you can be barefoot. Hair should be pulled back and away from the face. Shorts and leggings are permitted.
Age & Level Requirements:
Preschool dancers (ages 3-5) in our AcroDance Tumble classes DO NOT need to attend this placement class.
Dancers in the Acro Primary class (ages 5-7) DO NOT need to attend this placement class.
If you are a dancer, age 6 and over, and you would like to see if you can be placed in our acro level 1 class - you may attend.
If you are a new student, please come to the Level 1 - 3 classes so that we may place you in the correct class level. We may ask you to stay for the level 4 & up class placement if you qualify for a more advanced level.
If you are a returning student, please come to the level of acro that you were in LAST dance season.
If you are unsure which level you are in, please contact the studio so that we may assess your previous dance history to suggest the appropriate level.
Melanie, our Acro Director, and our other acro instructors will be with you that day to assess you. We hope that by having these classes it will eliminate any guesswork in the placement and registration for our 2018-2019 dance season.
**New students are welcome to attend, if you have not registered for the 2018-2019 dance season, you will need to fill out a waiver at the front desk before your dancer can attend the class.**
