Some acro classes may have to include several levels to accommodate your studio’s schedule. That’s ok! In this episode, Kate Evans will walk you through how to teach multiple levels in one class.
The AcroDance Resource Center has lesson plans and station cards to help manage these multiple level classes. Look under “Teaching Tools” for more resources!
