Barb Martewicz

As a passionate practitioner and dedicated teacher of Acro, Barb brings a unique blend of expertise, creativity, and warmth to every class. With 30 years of experience in Gymnastics and Acro, she has honed her skills not only as a performer but also as an educator committed to sharing the joy and benefits of Acro with students of all levels.

Barb began her journey in gymnastics at Olympia Gymnastics Center and then at The University of Iowa. She has transferred these skills into Acro for dance 20 years ago, captivated by its fusion of strength, flexibility, trust, and grace. She has since immersed herself in the Acro community, training rigorously and exploring various styles and techniques to deepen her understanding of this dynamic art form.

With a focus on safety, alignment, and progressive learning, Barb designs classes that cater to the needs and aspirations of each student. Whether you’re a beginner taking your first steps into Acro or an experienced practitioner refining your skills, she creates a supportive and empowering environment where everyone feels encouraged to explore their potential.

Beyond mastering the physical elements of Acro, Barb emphasizes the importance of communication, trust-building, and collaboration within her classes. Through partner exercises, group dynamics, and playful exploration, she fosters a sense of camaraderie and connection that extends far beyond the studio walls.

In addition to teaching regular classes, Barb also offers workshops, private lessons, and performance opportunities for those looking to deepen their practice or share their skills with others. She believes that Acro is not just a form of exercise but a transformative journey that nurtures body, mind, and spirit.

Outside of the studio, Barb works for Labcorp Oncology as a Specialty Development Executive.  She continues to enrich her Acro/Dance practice through ongoing training, collaboration with fellow Acro enthusiasts, and participating in events. She is dedicated to staying at the forefront of Acro innovation and education, always seeking new ways to inspire and empower her students.

Whether you’re seeking to build strength, flexibility, balance, or simply a sense of joy and connection, Barb invites you to join her on the mat and discover the magic of Acro together.
