Acro & Tumbling
Ages 3 years to 17 years old

At Art in Motion School of Dance we offer tumbling and acro classes based on the trusted Acrobatic Arts Syllabus, which our acro teachers have been trained and certified in. The program is based on safe and effective progressions within five divisions of AcroDance: Flexibility, Strength, Balancing, Limbering and Tumbling.


Acrobatic Arts includes 12 Levels of Syllabus, which take up to 36 weeks to complete each level. Simple, thoughtful progressions take the beginner preschool level dancer from log rolls and somersault to the advanced dancer tumbling effortlessly across the stage!

What Is Acro Dance & Why Acro?

Students wishing to enhance their current training choose to take an Acro Dance class. Acro complements many dance forms and enhances an individual’s technique/flexibility. Acro Dance works hand in hand with Jazz and Ballet, which is why we recommend these supplementary classes after Level One. Each year there is an increased amount of acro movements in dance choreography. From hip-hop to jazz and contemporary, we see acro elements incorporated into routines. We offer acro classes so that our dancers can learn these skills in a safe manner.

What Our Families Are Saying

We’ve been with AIM since the beginning. The coaches, staff, and dance family have seen our family through the best of times and also in the worst of times. I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that my children would not be who they are today without AIM. Can’t wait to get Pres in a rec class!! Andrea has worked countless hours alone side her staff to create the perfect environment to learn and grow and thrive for all children. What’s being offered here is so much more than just dance education. It’s life lessons. It’s discipline. It’s growing relationships. Communication. Family. 9 years have flown by! Looking forward to 9 more!

This studio is sooo spectacular and I've been grateful each and every day of the last 5 years that lanie has been dancing there. Not only for her but me as well. I have formed some wonderful bonds with the dance mama's and staff workers there who have helped me along my way especially when we joined the company team. Kendra Seiter you do so much for this studio and our families. You've held my hand, reassured me, kept a watchful eye on my child and answered more questions than I can count! I know you take care of us all and I thank you so so much! I can't wait to celebrate year 10 at Disney with the best studio EVER!!!!"
