Limited Capacity full

This workshop explores the question "When is a skill safe to practice without a spot or ready to perform?" Ideal participants are educators or students who are ready to teach or work on intermediate and beyond skills like two high stacking, hand to hand handstands, foot to hand and pitching. We will explore safety goals to always keep in mind, alignment to look for when stacking people, find exit plans when trying skills, establish good communication methods, and practice seeing breaking points to stop a skill before it becomes dangerous or collapses. This information helps students practice sooner without spotters, have confidence when putting a skill on stage, as well as allow students to safely explore new shapes and ideas.
