Years ago they were inspired to create every letter of the alphabet with their bodies–an amazing feat of strength, skill, and patience– and published their first book, ACRO: An Alphabet Art Book. Featuring colorful letters and high resolution images of the “acro alphabet,” their book includes an uplifting poem about hard work and cooperation.

Audience members participate in a light hearted group stretch and other fun activities. Learn about life as an acrobat, the need for healthy eating, the value of hard work and the importance of practice, practice, practice!
