Put some theatre into your thigh stands! In this workshop, we will use imagery, language, and other inspiring sources to generate and explore new creative partner/group acro material. We will include a review of the basic building blocks of acrobalance. This workshop will be creative, communicative, physical, and fun. Ideal for anyone who wants to: spark new ideas about adding creativity to your work, find new ways of playing and working with people, and just have fun! We will work in small groups; a partner is not required. Previous experience with partner acro/acrobalance is helpful, but not required.

Limited Capacity filling up

Prerequisites:
- Control and confidence falling from partner acrobatic skills
- Hand to Hand
- Comfort training independently the elements they are bringing to the workshop
- Training dynamic elements, or interested in learning the foundation for dynamic elements.

The workshop will be divided into two parts, technical Hand to Hand basics, and technical refinement of skills. technical basics will include balance and dynamic basics (columns, standing, jumping tempos from various platforms, and pitching), the second portion will be on the elements duos are working on (both dynamic and balance elements), and the last five minutes will be spent on some duo conditioning. Duos should come to the workshop with three elements they have been training and would like feedback on. This can range from technical refinement, troubleshooting, or work on progressions towards a more difficult element they wish to obtain. duos should expect a fast-paced workshop and should be able to use time well if the instructor needs to works with a duo.
