How can you get your recreational adolescent dancers to try Acro?

Students who excel on the rigours of classical dance instruction, acro provides a different kind of challenge. Breaking free from the traditional mould to recognise that dance is a fundamentally versatile art form in which skills can be applied in a number of different ways.

Let’s begin with the difficulties:

  • The physique of teens are frequently “set,” implying they have tightened up during adolescence. If your teen acrobats aren’t dancers or have only recently begun dancing, they won’t have had the opportunity to build their flexibility prior to this “setting” procedure.
  • Their bodies are bulkier as they become older, and their lack of form implies they’ll (usually) have loose upper bodies.
  • The “fear factor” has set in for many recreational youths, making them hesitant to try new skills.
  • Finally, because you didn’t have the benefit of having “won them over” until puberty, obtaining their love and support can be much harder.

On the other hand, there are a variety of advantages to educating this particular group:

  • They’re older, which implies you may have a more mature relationship with them and swiftly prove their worth if you’re ready and competent each session.
  • You may also push them throughout your Acro sessions more quickly because their minds are more mature than your younger students’: they simply pick it up quicker.
  • Those teenagers who are new to Acro are quite often really thrilled to try this “cool” new type of dance, giving them a very motivated bunch who brings in a huge amount of effort each week.

Even if your champion acrobats aren’t your recreational teenagers, your acro session could still be thrilling, engaging, and encouraging for your dancers. You will build an immensely fulfilling lesson for both you and your students if you know how to manage their strengths and challenges.
