It all started when…
After retiring at 16, burnt out after 12 years of extensive Trampolining, Sports Acrobatics, and Elite Gymnastics Training (up to 36 hours per week!)
Ilyan turned her focus to Dance at Newtown Performing Arts and Part Time Tramp and Acro Coaching.
Part-time Quickly became a Full-time Dance Acro teaching career, and Ilyan saw the need for something solely Acro Focused, that cxould combine, sports Acrobatics, Tumbling and Dance Acro out of a competitive environment.
No Uniforms, No Concerts, No extra fluff and stress, just the pure love of Acro Training and all of the friendship and rewards it brings.
AcroPals has grown immensely in less than a Year and we are extremely proud of our AcroPals families, and the joy our AcroPals Students bring to their teachers. We have created a welcoming, happy environment, away from the glare of competition and created a space for our kids to shine (and learn some pretty cool tricks!)
We provide a balanced approach to Acro which combines AcroYoga, Partner and Group Lifts and Cheer Tricks on a foundation of Tumbling & Acro Dance Training.
We have a diverse range of influences and encourage creativity from both our students & acro teachers.
No matter the level our Acro is above all things fun.
Progressions one class at a time. No giant leaps ahead!
Experience matters; 19 years and counting teaching gymnastics, trampolining, tumbling and acrobatics and 27 years training. Ilyan Keay is using her expertise to deliver creative programs from Pre School Acro/ In School Recreational through to Elite Dance Acro.
Find AcroPals Classes at our Marrickville Studios, at after school care facilities, at one of our prestigious dance schools, one on one, at holiday workshops or via our online courses. (Coming Soon!)
I believe everyone deserves the opportunity to see what sort of Acrobat they can be!
We offer a range of options to create the Best Acrobats wherever they are on their Acro Journey.
These classes are based out of our Marrickville Studios, we also offer In School Sports and After Care Activities. As well as Incursion and Excursions for Vacation Care Programs!
Our classes are fun and safety focused, we use Airtracks in all classes.
We teach Acrobatics on a solid base of strength training and stretching, with an emphasis on basic tumbling. Our Classes progress to acro flips & aerials and each lesson incorporates group and partner balances.
