Acro and Aerial open 6 – 7.30pm
This is a multi-aged class (Sprungsters, teens and adults) with a strong focus on technique in Acro and Aerial skills, progressions and sequences. This class will see you climbing and maneuvering with strong dynamic enjoyable movement on the tissu, static trapeze, partner balances and partner acro. Younger participants need to have some training experience (for training culture), but older participants with no previous experience are welcome.
Gentle Groundwork for teens/adults 7.00 – 8.30pm
Because it’s never too late to start – taking our time to develop balanced strength, flexibility, coordination, balance and mobility using gymnastics, aerials, yoga and other movement modes. Develop at your own pace in a fun social space.
