This workshop focuses on key elements of Acrobatics to help beginners find confidence in the practice. We will break the ice and get comfortable with fun partner exercises as we embody foundational skills including: finding your center of gravity, power lines, bone-stacking and efficient use of strength to name a few. This is a special opportunity for students at all levels to study the fundamentals with one of the best Acro teachers out there.
Training acrobatics will also help us improve our communication skills. Multiplevariations will definitely be available to challenge more seasoned practitioners.
Join us for a fun afternoon exploring different styles of Acro movement!
All levels welcome.
Hand-to-hand is undoubtedly one of the classic “tourist” destinations in the Acro World. But we’ve never been too interested in just ticking landmarks off some “must-see” list. We think of hand-to-hand as and entire landscape to explore through intelligent progressions that approach partner hand-balancing from a wide variety of angles.
For the past 14 years Jason and Chelsey have been perfecting the art of teaching hand to hand. If you like intelligent progressions and focused training techniques complete with warm ups and cool downs that will take your hand to hand practice to the next level, than this class is for you. In this workshop, through smart and formulaic progressions, we will progress from a low hand to hand to a standing hand to hand.
No matter where your hand balancing practice is, Jason and Chelsey can take it to the next level AND leave you with a training program that you can build on for a long time.
