2024 Thursday Intensives
3:30 pm to 6:30 pm (Optional $40 Add-on)
Come join us in our on-going quest to find the winding paths connecting H2H to the rest of our L-base acro practice. We’ll equip ourselves with some of our favorite drills for building strong foundations and dynamic range, and then venture into the wilds of transitions to and through H2H and RH2H. Our focus will be more on the playful exploration of where hand holding can take us than on any one peak skill. Refinements and challenges will be available for all levels of H2H explorers.
Prerequisites: 5 second low and extended L-base H2H and/or RH2H. A controlled lower from extended F2H to low F2H. An adventurous spirit and enthusiasm for side quests.
