About the Event
Partner acrobatics combines balance, flexibility and coordination with partnership, trust and play. In this 3 hour workshop, participants will learn how to lift their partner in the air, how to be lifted themselves, how to keep each other safe and how to build trust for bigger and better skills. We will start with spotting and trust exercises, progress into basic L-basing (with the base lying down on the floor) and conclude with some standing acrobatics skills. Partners will rotate throughout the workshop, so no partner is required to enroll.
