What does it feel like to be supported and respected in a playful way? Through a variety of games to warm up our communication skills and build trust we will explore the nuances of connection within acro and balance moves.

Counterbalance, trust, communication and spotting are on the menu. This class is geared for people with basic to no experience with Acro. Even if you have been practicing acro for a bit you will gain a deeper understanding of some key elements. All are welcome. No partner needed.
