In this intensive weekend we will explore a wide variety of Icarian style pops, where the base and flyer fully disconnect mid flight! We will focus on learning to do it as effortlessly as possible so that the tosses can be high, and the catches pillowy-soft. Start with fundamentals and practice a wide variety of linear, rotating and twisting pops! This weekend will be sure to leave you feeling like you’ve been on an amazing adventure!
The acro content is aimed at experienced AcroYogis and Acrobats. In order for us to provide you with the best learning experience please ensure you fulfil the pre reqs below.
You can see some of Hobs’ Icarian work on his Instagram page:
