All classes are structured to develop skills through progressions based upon AKROS Gymnastic’s curriculum. Our curriculum is specific to the development level of each class type. For example, Preschool classes emphasize very basic skills, positions and special matting to assist and manipulate skills. 5-8 year olds beginning - Intermediate are expected to master basic skills and string skills together to form a routine. The older students are better at tasking which speeds up the learning curve. “Fast Trac” classes are very fast paced for the focused, high-energy, extremely motivated students.
All classes utilize Power Tumbling Floor, Trampolines and Double Mini Trampoline to develop your child’s sensory integration, the building blocks to all sport skills.
5-8 yrs. Beginning to Intermediate - Rolls, Dive rolls, handstand skills, cartwheels, positions, short routines, flips, flip flops, rope climb, strength conditioning, flexibility, persistence, respect & social skills are a samples of AKROS Gymnastic’s curriculum.
8-12 yrs. Beginning to Intermediate - Rolls, Dive rolls, Handstand Skills, cartwheels, positions, Junior Olympic routines, flips, flip flops, double flipping skills, serious strength & flexibility conditioning, imagery, focus, persistence, respect for authority and self are samples of AKROS Gymnastic’s curriculum.
Teen to Adult Trampoline Gymnastics - Depending upon each student’s level, a student is developed through logical progressions. Rolls, Dive rolls, Handstand Skills, cartwheels, positions, Junior Olympic routines, flips, flip flops, double flipping skills, serious strength & flexibility conditioning, imagery, focus, respect for authority and self are samples of AKROS Gymnastic’s curriculum. Essentially, each student may be on a different learning trac. This class is for self-motivated people who really want to learn and change for the better. Unlike the younger age groups classes, this class is less structured with the individual deciding what skills he or she want to learn. For example, if you are a cheerleader, needing a back handspring, you will be taught the correct progressions and conditioning to succeed.
Contemporary dance is a genre of dance performance that originally informed by and borrowing from classical, modern, and jazz styles, it has since come to incorporate elements from many styles of dance. Due to its technical similarities, it is often perceived to be closely related to modern dance, ballet, and other classical concert dance styles.
In terms of the focus of its technique, contemporary dance tends to combine the strong but controlled legwork of ballet with modern that stresses on torso. It also employs contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristics of modern dance. Unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed, and direction are often used, as well.
Functional fitness is a classification of training that prepares the body for real-life movements and activities. What we know functional fitness to be today, or “modern functional fitness,” was developed on a foundation rooted in rehabilitation and therapy. Besides making you more well-rounded as a person, functional fitness has a number of benefits. These include benefits for your health, everyday life, and athletic performance:
Improves Everyday Life
Greater Muscle Memory
Improves Balance and Posture
Reduced Risk of Injury
Aerial silks is a type of performance in which one or more artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a fabric. The fabric may be hung as two pieces, or a single piece, folded to make a loop, classified as hammock silks. Performers climb the suspended fabric without the use of safety lines and rely only on their training and skill to ensure safety. We use the fabric to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral their bodies into and out of various positions. Aerial silks may be used to fly through the air, striking poses and figures while flying.
A full body stretch using movement that flow smoothly to increase flexibility, decrease muscle tension, develop core strength, and improve muscular balance. A very complete workout for anyone who is looking to focus on a more intensive style of stretching.
Afrobeat is a music genre which involves the combination of elements of West African musical styles.
Ballet is a classical dance form demanding grace and employing formalized steps and gestures set in intricate flowing patterns to create expression through movement.

Hip-Hop is a street-style based dance which is normally choreographed to music from the hip-hop genre. It includes a wide variety of styles, primarily being 'breaking' which began to evolve since the 1970s.
What mainly distinguishes hip hop from other forms of dance is the fact that it is mainly focused on 'freestyle' (improvisational) and hip hop dance crews occasionally come together and engage in a freestyle dancing competition.
