Acro Dance Classes
Acro dance is a style of dance that combines dance technique with precision acrobatic elements. It is defined by its athletic character, its unique choreography, which seamlessly blends dance and acrobatics. Acro uses skills of gymnastics and artistic expression in a dance form.
Acro is an especially challenging dance style for dancers as it requires them to be trained in both dance and acrobatic skills. Acro dancers must be in excellent physical condition as well, because acro is a physically demanding activity.
Lena Wiklund Lorimer
Lena is originally from Winnipeg Manitoba. There she trained at several well-received dance schools such as The Royal Winnipeg Ballet and The Winnipeg Contemporary Dancers.
After graduating from both programs she continued her dance and music education at the Sheridan College’s Music Theatre program. She has trained with such names as Linda Garneau, Jeff Dimitrio, Marie Barron, and Diana Reis as well as many other great teachers.
Lena is the founder and choreographer of her own dance company since 2013 called Hetta Dance Company.
Hetta Dance Company’s mission is to provide Ontario with something that she feels is missing, “dance theatre”! Bringing together those involved in the performing arts and those who may not be in the industry, to experience the power of storytelling through dance in a new light.
With her background in ballet, modern and jazz, Artistic Director and Choreographer Lena has produced a style of movement that is technically stunning and artistically moving. Lena’s unique style captures the way we understand the human condition and the beauty of the ephemeral through narratives. These concepts become something that everyone can identify with.
Lena is thrilled to share her professional skills and experiences with her dance & music students at Hetta Studio of Dance & Music. Her goal is to inspire and support young dancers and enrich the community through dance and music.
