CLASS LEVELING SYSTEM: General Guidelines listed, with any questions please contact the studio!
Our Acro Leveling System
At SASD, all acrobatics students receive a "Goals Rubric" within each level. This rubric provides a set of goals they must achieve in order to move up to the next level in acrobatics. These goals focus on 5 areas of training- Flexibility, Strength, Balance, Limbering & Tumbling. Because of this, all acrobatic class placement MUST go through Miss. Gabby- for new & returning students! It is vital that we place your acrobat in the correct class, so that they can flourish and move up our leveling system correctly! SAFETY IS OUR MAIN PRIORITY!
Level 1 Acro: for children ages 4-7 years old that are still working on learning and perfecting the basics of acrobatics. They have not yet completed their Acro 1 Rubric!
Level 2 Acro: for children ages 5 & up that have completed the Acro 1 Rubric. New Acrobats ages 8-11 should enter this level.
Level 3 Acro: for children ages 7 & up that have completed the Acro 1 & 2 Rubrics. New Acrobats ages 11 & Up should enter this level.
Level 4 Acro: intended for children who have completed the Acro 1, 2 & 3 Rubrics and have all skills through a back walkover perfected. Advanced level skills including back-handsprings, aerial and tucks will be introduced.
Level 5-7: Competitive Level Acro Teams, by invitation only.
Contortion: Is an open level class, however all students enrolled in Contortion must also take an acrobatics class at the appropriate level
* Acro 1, 2 & 3 are offered 2 times each week to accommodate growing class size! Students that fit these levels are welcome to enroll in both classes each week if they would like to advance at a more accelerated pace!
