    Our Acro Dance classes held at our Bribie Island and Morayfield studios are the beautiful fusion of the fluidity and grace of classic dance techniques with the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Acro’s roots are in traditional Chinese dance, later appearing as a favoured style on the Vaudeville stage. More recently, Acro has gained popularity with the widespread success of the contemporary circus productions of Cirque du Soleil.

    Acro focuses on bringing together strength, poise and flexibility, throws, somersaults and catches. Acro technique includes balancing, limbering, tumbling and partnering, based on flexibility, contortion, and strength.

    Contemporary Dance has fewer restrictions and more opportunity for creative fusion. At Footworks Dance we recommend Contemporary Dance classes as a complementary syllabus to Classical Ballet (it can, however, also be taken on its own). These dance classes are designed to provide a solid contemporary base with the inclusion of warm-ups, stretches, floor and corner work, articulation of limbs, turns, travelling combinations, jumps, and improvisation. The syllabus was created with the help of Adam Wheeler (Artistic Associate of Stompin, Chunky Move, formerly of the Victorian College of the Arts).

    Jazz dance is a continually changing and evolving genre with many points that cross over into other styles such as Broadway, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop, Funk and Lyrical. Perhaps the main distinguishing factor of Jazz dance classes when compared to other styles is its strong focus on rhythm. Many students find pairing Classical Ballet with Jazz classes gives them the beginning of a very well rounded dance practice.

    Incorporating warm ups, stretches, floor and corner work along with kicks, jumps, historical and modern steps, combinations and dances, Jazz classes are designed to technically develop students’ creativity with choreography and improvisation.

    Footworks Dance Studio Jazz classes are also trained in the Australian Teachers of Dancing Ltd (ATOD) syllabus which has an emphasis on technique, strength, and artistry.
