Acro is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. It is defined by its athletic character and its unique choreography, which seamlessly blends jazz and acrobatics.
Acro is an especially challenging dance style for dancers as it requires them to be in excellent physical condition because it is a physically demanding activity.
Children will develop coordination, strength and flexibility while learning to listen to their teacher, co-operate with others and work independently. Your children will be tumbling their way through class in no time!

My daughter started just 2 weeks ago. MS. MEAGAN is her teacher and in just 2 weeks she's taught her so much. Meagan's a wonderful teacher, great with the dancers, and beyond kind.
There are only a handful of studios in Guelph that offer ACRO and thank goodness EMOTION DANCE COMPANY is one of them. We googled plenty of studios and called around but landed here and couldn't be happier.
This studio is super clean and pricing is great. The seating area has been put together with such consideration to parents. There's plenty of sitting options and video monitors of each studio so that you can view the dancers at work. Plus, wifi while you're waiting (if you choose).
My daughter does gymnastics but wanted to add ACRO and Contemporary JAZZ and has been over the moon since starting here. She talks about it endlessly. We are so fortunate to be doing 2 classes back to back on Tuesdays. First JAZZ then ACRO. "Way to go" on scheduling options that make that possible. (2 hours of dance) PERFECT!
I highly recommend this studio if dance is what you are looking for. A HIDDEN GEM!!!!!!!
