Hand Balancing Semi-Private Lesson

Beginner to Advanced Level (Age 9 to adult)

  • 1 hour


Hand Balancing is an empowering discipline that utilizes every muscle in your body and develops body awareness and control. It's an excellent cross-training discipline for aerialists in particular because it naturally balances the "pulling" action done on aerial apparatuses with a "pushing" action. Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced hand balancer, you will learn to develop your technique for different hand balancing entrances, exits, and shapes (such as stag, straddle, tuck, pike, and straight-line). Semi-private lessons are great for cutting the cost of private lessons when you have one or more friends you can bring with you. (2 to 12 participants) At Upside Aerial, we offer Hand Balancing private and semi-private lessons with Juli Bierwirth, a highly experienced circus arts instructor with an extensive teaching and training background in acrobatic and aerial pole, hand balancing, partner acrobatics, flying trapeze, and cyr wheel.
