Partner Acrobatics Workshop with Jim & Det!
In this special partner acrobatics weekend Det & Jim will go deeper into the material of lifting, carrying, using each others momentum to develop power and grace. We will both work on details of basic techniques for bases and flyers, adapting knowledge and experience to another level and on advanced material concerning more challenging skills. The better the basics are understood and executed, the easier and faster the advanced tricks will be achieved.
We will put special emphasis on safety and efficiency in using the body.
