How does Acrobatic Arts Benefit a Young Dancer?
TDE is an Acrobatic Arts Certified Studio. The Acrobatic Arts Program is a fabulous way to explore both dance and acrobatics. Your child will explore the acro positions, locomotor skills (galloping, leaping, jumping, hopping) and improve their flexibility, balance, cooperation and social skills. This class is a combination of acro, music, dance, imagination and fun.
