Safety

Guidance LLC, the acroDANCE experience, reserves the right to adjust participant levels for safety. Our mission focuses on holistic dancer development and creating positive, family-friendly environments. Aligned with the Youth Protection Association for Dance (Y.P.A.D.), we prioritize empowering dance communities and ensuring youth safety. Together, we provide education and resources to promote well-being. At guiDANCE events, we collaborate to uphold these principles, ensuring a secure and enriching experience for everyone.

Floor Work

Floor work in Acro dance is a dynamic
fusion of acrobatics and dance, highlighting strength, flexibility, and control. Dancers execute rolls, spins, balances, and
transitions seamlessly, often integrating splits, handstands, and intricate footwork. This component demands a solid foundation in acrobatic skills and dance technique.
As well as focus, precision, and agility for safe execution. It enriches Acro dance routines, mesmerizing audiences with athleticism and artistry while adding depth and dimension to each performance.

Incorporating Acro

Integrating Acro transitions and tricks into dance routines infuses athleticism and creativity, elevating performances. These elements engage audiences and challenge dancers to excel in balance, strength, and flexibility, pushing the limits of traditional dance forms. Seamlessly fusing Acro with dance enhances routines, presenting visually striking displays of artistry and skill. Embracing Acro not only diversifies choreography but also nurtures versatility, empowering dancers to express themselves in fresh and captivating ways.
