Acro Dance is a style of dance that combines dance technique with precise acrobatic elements. Properly achieved acrobatic skills can be added to a multitude of dance genres. Acro dance is meant to be softer with the emphasis on lengthening, control and balance. There typically  is no sprung floor in acrobatic dance but one learns the ability to articulate tricks with ease and precision. In short, gymnastics is referred to as a sport whereas acro dance is more an art form.
