I am super excited to bring a weekend full of acro to everyone there. This series of 4 workshops will advance your technical knowledge and each section will present a new building block that can be incorporated into your current practice. Thanks to Lauren Arrigo & Bryson Lloyd for helping us to set up this weekend and setting up our venue Fly Circus Space
Friday Evening – Jam 6-9 PM
This is a chance for the community to get together, have fun and start warming up for the weekend! It also gives me a chance to meet and connect with everyone.
Saturday Session 1: Noon-2:30PM (2.5 Hours)
Standing Acro Calibrations
For many individuals, the jump in elevation between L-Basing and Standing Acrobatics can be daunting. Our focus is bridging the gap between these 2 practices. Emphasis will be on elevated F2H & H2H postures in a manner that maintains a safe environment for flyers while significantly challenging our bases. Intelligent spotting is paramount to a successful standing practice and will be an integral part of this content.
Saturday Session 2: 4-6:30PM (2.5 Hours)
We will be exploring rotational dance lifts that take flyers through inversions (and back). Focus will be on shape and control as we gradually take things higher and higher.
Sunday Session 1: Noon-2:30PM(2.5 Hours)
Get Up, Get Up … to Get Down
Transitioning between L-Basing and Standing Acrobatics is essential for sequences that move between those two worlds. Come explore different methods of shifting seamlessly between these two practices.
Sunday Session 2: 4-6:30PM (2.5 Hours)
Standing Acro Transitions
The incorporation of elegance is essential to our standing practice. Our priority will be adding movement to static poses and mobility between multiple standing postures. Instruction of these transitions will highlight the benefits of structure over strength. Learning techniques to build standing flows will provide us with ease and comfort at new heights.
