Acrobatic Dance or ‘Acro Dance’ for short, is a unique and exciting dance style that combines dance with gymnastic and acrobatic movements. Children learn impressive tumbling and limbering ‘tricks’ as they develop their strength, flexibility, balance, co-ordination and dance skills.

We recommend that children who are serious about Acro Dance take Ballet or Contemporary Modern classes also, which will aid and accelerate their progress in Acro Dance.

Pre-School Acro Dance – Acro Antics

See our Pre-School dance page to read about our Acro Antics Pre-School classes – an exhilarating introduction to Acro Dance for ages 3-4.

Reception to School Year 4 – Acro Antics

Acro Antics is our very own Acro Dance programme, lovingly created here at Chloe May’s Dance Academy. These classes suit children who are full of beans, as they will learn to dance on their hands as well as their feet!

From cartwheels and handstands to gallops and splits, our classes teach the foundations of Acro Dance in an engaging and accessible way, incorporating fun choreography to popular music.

Each week children receive a sticker of a movement they have practised in class and these are collected to earn termly medals, rewarding their in-class progress. Our cute and cuddly mascot Acorn the Ant joins children in their classes to lend a helping hand.

School Years 4-6 Acrobatic Arts

Acrobatic Arts is considered to be one of the safest and most effective syllabi for teaching Acro skills progressively up to advanced pre-professional levels.

Children learn more advanced tumbling and limbering movements such as front and back walk overs, handsprings, pop/hurdle cartwheels and round-offs which are then seamlessly integrated into dance routines.

The mastering of advanced Acro skills requires a high level of flexibility and strength – children will therefore need to develop the self-discipline and eagerness to practise at home.

What Our Parents Think

Don’t just take our word for it!

Both of my children have been going to the academy for over a year now. My youngest son has suspected autism and I am amazed with how the academy fits him into his ballet class with so much patience and professionalism. My daughter gets excited before she goes to every lesson and aspires to be like the older dancers one day. I would definitely recommend the academy to any parent who would like their child to learn to dance in a loving, diverse, structured and professional environment.

A Melody Bear & Acro Antics Mum

Would recommend to anyone wanting to start dance lessons. My daughter has been attending for over 3 years. She has tried other places but loves the friendly teachers and different classes.

A Junior Ballet, Tap/Contemporary Modern Mum

Excellent dance school, teachers and timetables to suit all. My two girls have been attending for both ballet and tap from ages 2 and 4. They look forward to their lessons every Saturday. Wonderful supportive teachers and lots of fun!

A Melody Bear Mum

Fabulous dance class for my daughter, she enjoys it very much and Chloe is amazing with the children.

A Junior Ballet Mum

We have taken our daughter to other dance classes in the past and nothing compares to Chloe May’s. Nicole looks forward to going so much and really can’t wait to return. We would recommend to anyone.

A Melody Bear Dad

Fab teacher, well organised and very friendly to the kids, my two love going.

A Junior Acro and Tap/Contemporary Modern Dad

My daughter has attended Chloe May’s Dance Academy since it first opened and absolutely loves it. The dances are so much fun, especially with the use of little props and being able to dress up for special occasions. The Melody Bear dance charts are a great idea, a sticker every week to put on and reward badges to work towards. Chloe does an amazing job at keeping parents / guardians up to date and has continued to do so through such a difficult 12 months due to COVID. Have nothing but high praise.

A Melody Bear Mum

Friendly and welcoming. My daughter absolutely loves it here. Chloe is a brilliant teacher. I would definitely recommend.
