In partner acrobatics, communication, trust, and patience are key. In our classes we teach fun moves and transitions that can be performed with a partner, but we also teach how to develop a practice of respectful partner communication and individual conditioning. Our classes may involve one or more of the following categories of acrobatics.
This type of acrobatics is performed by two or more partners: a base who stays connected to the ground, a flyer who stays connected to the base, and a spotter who helps maintains safety and communication. In acroyoga the base typically lies on the ground with their legs raised in "L-basing" position, supporting the flyer by their hands and legs. This allows for all kinds of creative shapes and transitions.
Learn to add flair and excitement to your acro using elements of dance. In our classes we will work on the fundumentals of building an acrobatic "flow" that allows you to move fluidly from one pose to the next with a partner.
In standing acrobatics, the base remains on their feet while supporting the flyer in the air. Standing acrobatics are generally considered a more advanced form of practice since the risk of danger is higher. That's why we always practice with spotters and lots of mats for safety! We start off teaching beginner level moves that you can grow and progress to more dynamic positions as you learn.
Acrobatics classes are done in bare feet, though grippy yoga socks are also permissible. Wear clothes you feel comfortable going upside down in, and bring a bottle of water. You do not need to come with a partner to take these classes!
