Standing Acrobatics acro workshop
April 1, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 9:00 pm$95.00 - $350.00
The Standing Acrobatics ethos is two-fold:
1. You will leave this weekend with more than you came with. That’s a guarantee.
2. We will not only learn the tricks, but we’ll also learn why tricks and techniques are done certain ways, and how to train and execute them them safely. Safety is the name of the game. The name of the game? Safety.
10:00am – 11:30am – Beginner/Improver
Handstands are like hard drugs. Initially; they’re scary, difficult to acquire and you’ll feel like you can never do enough. But with the right people by your side; you’ll soon find they’re much easier to acquire, you’ll be doing them all the time, and once you do enough; you won’t be able to get them off your mind. – – – Let us help you on your path to becoming a handstand junkie.
11:30am – 1:00pm – Beginner/Improver
The Essentials of F2H and H2H
Foot to Hand and Hand to Hand are not only super cool tricks, but they are one of the foundation elements of any partner acrobatic practice. So it’s worth learning how to do them properly as the lessons and techniques you’ll learn in this class will last you throughout your entire partner acrobatic journey and practice.
And since we just spent so much time working on our handstands, this is gonna be a breeze!
We’ll go through everything: from the little, commonly overlooked details that make a successful F2H or H2H, to the big, more obvious details and we’ll also be giving you some incredibly useful strength and mobility work, as well as explaining some of the variations you commonly see and why you see them.
1:00pm – 2:00pm
I bet you’re feeling hungry because you didn’t want to eat too big a breakfast before you do a bunch of acrobatics. Smart move, but now you’re starving. Go eat.
2:00 – 4:00pm – Beginner/Improver + Intermediate/Advanced
Acrobatics + Tumbling
No frills, plenty of spills and definitely some thrills. We’ll guide you through the essential acrobatic movements that will help propel you into acrobatic superstardom, but also help keep you safe.
Acrobatics is a house built of bricks, no wait. It’s a pyramid built of stones, no wait. It’s a ship, built of planks, no wait. Ok whatever. Acrobatics is basically built on a series of progressive foundational elements, without which; you will die. No joke. Straight up dead. Ded. R.I.P. Gone. Down. Worm Food. Deaded. Ok, maybe not dead but you get the point. It’s bad.
4:00pm – 6:00pm – Intermediate/Advanced
Everything you wanted to know about Hand to Hand (but were too scared to ask)
Hand to Hand is not only a super cool trick, but it’s also one of the foundational elements of any partner acrobatic practice. So it’s worth learning how to do them properly. The lessons and techniques you’ll learn in this class will last you throughout your entire partner acrobatic journey and practice.

6:00pm – 7:00pm
Let’s play my favourite game; ‘Hungry, Hungry Hippos’. Except, instead of hippos it’s acrobats. And instead of a game, it’s serious-business because you’re hungry.
7:00pm – 9:00pm – Intermediate/Advanced
The ‘Standing Acrobatics’ special. The class that put us on the map and made people stop and say “I cannot understand his accent at all.’ Inlocate. I’ve taught this to hundreds of people across America and now I’m bringing my method and progressions right to your door. When the doorbell rings, don’t lie in bed ignoring me because you’re cozy and the door is all the way downstairs. Come down, open it up, invite me in (I drink coffee, not tea) and let’s nail this inlocate business.
