What is Acro?

Acrobatic Dance (also known as "AcroDance" or "acro") is a genre of dance that has grown in popularity since the rise of shows like “So You Think You Can Dance”, “Dance Moms”, "America's Best Dance Crew", and “World of Dance”. Acro embodies the tricks, flips, and feats of strength that you see on the dance floor: aerial cartwheels, handstands, standing needle splits, back handsprings, and everything in between! The extreme flexibility, tumbling, and strength skills are all aspects of AcroDance.

What is the difference between acrobatic dance and gymnastics?

While gymnastics and acrobatic dance both consist of tumbling and require a great amount of strength and flexibility, the two are not identical. Gymnastics is a competitive sport performed on multiple apparatus. Acro is a style of dance.  In competitions, gymnasts are strictly judged on technique. In acrobatic dance, artistry and fluidity from skill to skill are equally as important as the execution of the skill. Gymnasts are meant to be powerful in their approaches, while acrobatic dancers use softer, more artistic lines in their tumbling.  The intent of the two disciplines are different, even though they share many of the same acrobatic skills.

What Age GROUPS CAN PARTICIPATE IN CLASSES?

Services are available for all ages! As soon as your child is crawling and pulling up, they're ready for our toddler classes. For adult students, please make your instructor aware of any physical limitations or injuries that you may have, so they can give you an appropriate modification.

What SERVICES DOES CATAPULT MOVEMENT OFFER?

Catapult Movement offers online, one-on-one, and group instruction in acrobatic and aerial skills, including flexibility, tumbling, balancing, limbering, strength, and coordination. Catapult Movement is mobile, so the setting is up to the student. We will bring tumbling mats to you for your lessons! We conduct in-home lessons, workshops at local dance studios, private classes for homeschool groups, birthday acro dance parties, one-on-one lessons for tumblers, and classes for child-care facilities. For one-on-one students, Catapult Movement offers either curriculum-based instruction for students wanting to become a well-rounded artist or personalized lesson plans for those who are trying to master only certain skills.
