Spain Intensive

June 8, 2018 - June 21, 2018

Program

Program

Optional one or two week long training in Partner Acrobatics.

PartnerAcrobatics.com Intensives are unique because our students get to create their own personal acro adventure.

Simultaneous classes are offered daily, each with varying levels of acrobatic competency; all classes are geared towards having students increase their own abilities. Higher level offerings will have separate pre-requisites that will need to be met in order to participate in the class. This encourages students to be able to work with other participants in the course who are working on similar skill sets.

In our Partner Acrobatics programs we cover many different acrobatic disciplines: standing acrobatics, handstand training, washing machines, trio tricks, Icarian games, to name a few.
This physical intensity is balanced out with our therapeutic sessions, which aim to heal and restore the body. You have the freedom to choose how many hours you spend on Acro vs Therapeutics.
This program will give you the chance to refine your Acro skills and to have loads of fun.

Prerequisites

Prerequisites

We do require require you have some acrobatic skills. We need you to honestly and accurately asses whether the following skills are accessible/of ease to you (while working with someone of similar skill level) as a base OR flyer, at the time of application you must be able to accomplish the skills without a spotter helping (they can be there for safety).

On your application you will be asked to rate your comfort level in the following…. while they are not prerequisites, the more experience you come with the more you will gain out of the training!

L-BASING (base lying down):

STANDING:

Send us a video showing a 1-2 minute acrobatic flow of your choice.

The video should represent where you are at skill-wise, however, it doesn’t need to be all of the craziest things you can do—think elements from the preqs! The video also doesn’t need to be of high production quality, a quick one on your cell phone is fine.
