Summer Dance Acrobatic Skills and Schedule

Placement in Acro is based on skill level and not age.  Below is a breakdown of the four different levels of Acro and the prerequisites needed to enroll.  We also have a list of what skills the students will be working on in each level.  It is not a comprehensive list, but gives a general idea of the major skills learned.  Acro only has a fee for the entire summer.  It will not have a weekly rate.   If classes do not have adequate enrollment, they will be canceled.  If sections fill, additional sections can be created with enough demand so enroll in the class and get on the waitlist.  Register on your account under the Salem Summer Dance Acro 2024 season.  

Cost: Fee is due on July 1.
