The Southern Strutt is proud to offer the only Acro program in the area with teachers trained in Acro not gymnastics. Our program focuses on strength and conditioning, flexibility training, and acro skills. We offer five different levels of Acro. Our highest levels are by audition placement only. We highly recommend you accompany your acro class with one of our once a week classes or your Pre-Company and Performance Crew classes. The skills learned in acro are designed to be incorporated into your jazz, hip hop, and ballet classes.

Head Acro Teacher, Tawney Giles, is fully certified with the Acrobatic Arts program out of Canada. This accreditation is an international honor, and she shares all of her knowledge with the other Acro teachers at the studio.

Dress Code: Dancers will have bare feet in this class and preferably a leotard or tight fitting athletic wear for proper spotting. Hair must be secure in a low bun or braid.
