DANCE

     This fall we will be separating our acro training out of our dance classes and creating separate classes called Acro for Dancers. There are two primary benefits of making our acro training separate from our dance. First is that we will be able to create more appropriate levels for our acro training. This is great for both teachers and students who will then get to focus on exactly the skills they need. Second is that it expands our acro training to a full hour. This means faster progress and skill acquisition for students.

     You may enroll in dance classes at Roots and choose not to enroll in Acro for Dancers. However, we highly recommend that you get through at least a level 1 Acro for dancers before deciding whether or not you want to opt out of acro training.

     You are also very welcome to enroll in Acro for Dancers classes, even if you are not taking dance classes at Roots. This class is open to kids in our community who may want to supplement their dance classes at other facilities with acro training at Roots.

     Acro for Dancers is offered on both Tuesday and Thursday. Depending on your interest, you may enroll once or twice a week. Coming to Acro for Dancers twice a week will speed skill acquisition and progress.

MULTI CLASS DISCOUNT

If you enroll your child for multiple dance classes, we offer a discounted pricing.

DRESS CODE:

GIRLS:

Girls will need to wear a leo when going out onto the gym floor. 

Appropriate class wear for girls is as follows:

-leo

-students may layer on bottom with fitted sports shorts or fitted leggings

-Students may layer on top and on bottom over their leos when they are in the dance studio.

(if you are unsure if it is appropriate to layer in your particular dance class, ask your dance teacher.)

You are welcome to buy leos online or anywhere else, but we also have a variety of leos available for purchase at our gym

BOYS:

It is more difficult to impose a dress code on boys because inexpensive options are not consistently or readily available. We are looking for an option that we can consistently keep in stock, but for now, we ask the boys to do their best to find fitted tank tops to wear to class. This is particularly important as boys move into higher skill levels because of the spotting/safety issues that come into play when kids are wearing loose t-shirts.
