What if my child doesn’t fit in the age range of the class we have chosen?  If your child is going to be within the age range of the class during that session, please email the Director so that adjustment can be made for you to register.

What is Acrobatics?  It combines dance and acrobatic elements such as balancing, limbering & tumbling.  Cirque du Soleil is an example of acrobatics.  ASD is a certified studio that uses the Acrobatics Arts syllabus in all their classes.  Gymnastics skills and Acrobatic skills are the same, except in Acro students are taught to land these skills so they can be safely performed on dance floors.

Why is it important to dance on sprung floors only? Only a custom built floor like our O’Mara Sprung dance floors have the closed cell foam support underneath to absorb the impact from the dancers and elevate the stress on their joints.

What forms of payment do you accept?
ASD accepts many forms of payment for your convenience. E transfers, Cash, Amex, Visa & MasterCard.

Where are you located?
394 Russett Drive, Arnprior.
