**Welcome to Dynasty Institute: Elevating Dance Through Progressions**

At Dynasty Institute, we recognize the paramount importance of skill development and progressive training to nurture the boundless potential within every dancer. Our virtual Acro classes are meticulously crafted around a specialized skill development process that revolves around the concept of progressions.

**Understanding Progressions:**
Progressions are the carefully designed stepping stones that lead our dancers from fundamental techniques to the zenith of advanced movements. By deconstructing complex skills into manageable components, we ensure that each participant can confidently master the foundational building blocks essential for successful execution.

**Our Approach to Progressions:**

1. **Foundational Principles:** We commence by instilling fundamental techniques that lay the cornerstone of Acro. This phase is vital for establishing a strong understanding of body alignment and control.

2. **Incremental Advancement:** As dancers grow in confidence, we introduce progressively challenging elements. Each progression builds upon the previous one, fostering a sense of achievement while preserving safety.

3. **Customized Guidance:** Recognizing that every dancer learns at their unique pace, our seasoned instructors offer personalized support, ensuring that each participant progresses comfortably.

4. **Skill Integration:** Progressions culminate in the seamless integration of acquired skills into fluid routines. This enables dancers to exhibit their newfound abilities with grace and precision.

**The Significance of Structure and Punctuality:**
We firmly believe that a structured learning environment is essential for effective skill development. Our classes are meticulously organized to deliver consistent and organized experiences, guaranteeing that every dancer receives the focused attention and guidance they deserve. Punctuality is emphasized to maximize learning time and maintain a respectful atmosphere.

**Age Group and Class Size:**
Our virtual Acro program is thoughtfully tailored for dancers aged 8 to 16. To ensure personalized attention and a high-quality learning experience, we limit each class to a maximum of 14 students. This approach empowers our instructors to provide individualized guidance and unwavering support to every participant.

**Meet Our Instructor: The Queen of Acro, Miss Lonnie**
Our esteemed instructor, Miss Lonnie, renowned as The Queen of Acro, is a firm advocate of Continuing Education. She holds her Acrobatic Dance And Contortion Certification under the International Curriculum Acrobatic Arts, embodying our commitment to excellence and innovation.

Join Dynasty Institute and embark on a journey where progressions unlock the door to dance mastery. Together, we'll elevate your dance skills to new heights.
