Sean, Jessalyn, and Glen will be teaching a dynamic 3-day Standing Acrobatics, H2H, and Icarian Intensive!

Afternoon Session: 2:30pm - 530pm
**Half of each morning session will be Icarian

Foot to Hand (F2H) and Hand to Hand (H2H) are the cornerstones of a standing Acrobatics practice. In this Intensive, we will combine our many years of experience and our varying backgrounds to give you an in-depth exploration of these topics.  We will establish a strong foundation of what’s required for excelling in standing acrobatics - including proven strength and technique drills, effective spotting to keep you safe, and the skills needed to transition between static poses & dynamic transitions. We will explore static and dynamic H2H and F2H entries and exits, including pitching, trios, and saltos.

In addition to partner Acrobatics, we will also study techniques used by professional acrobats for training handstands. We will establish proper form, train effective drills, and provide individual assessments of your personal handstand practice.

Finally, we also be teaching Icarian in this Intensive. Icarian is foot juggling - WITH HUMANS! Bases, you will learn how to to throw with height and precision, and how to catch softly. Flyers, you will have a blast! You will also learn how to fly powerfully and gracefully while you’re completely free in the air. Exact content will depend on the level of students registered, but come prepared to be challenged
