Acrobalance involves the physical act of sharing weight and balancing between two or more people. We'll explore acrobalance from both circus and yoga perspecgives, blending trust and connection with dynamic play, flexibility for mind and body, and physical conditioning. Acrobalance will literally turn you upside down and give you a whole new perspective on your potential to be both strong and supported from the ground up into the air. No experience and no partner necessary! Amy Christian is the Artistic Director of Wise Fool and has been the lead instructor of partner acrobatics at the Wise Fool Studio for the past 8 years, as well as performing and choreographing acrobalance acts for stages across the US.
All Levels Acrobalance: Thursdays, 5:30-7:15 $16 per night drop-ins welcome.
