Intro to Partner Acrobatic Dance

About this Workshop

Have you watched partners move seamlessly across the stage, using lifts and poses to incorporate three dimensional space? In this workshop, participants will learn the foundations of acrobatic partnering and learn an original partner dance sequence. You will also learn different methods for making the acrobatic sequences beautiful, expressive, and ready for the stage.

No partner is necessary, but previous athletic or acrobatic experience is a must. Not sure what this might include? Kick up to a hand stand against the wall, cartwheel and horse stance (low squat with legs apart).
