AcroBody is honored to host Standing Acrobatics for a weekend workshop. They are currently performing in Crystal, a new show by Cirque Du Soleil. This is a rare opportunity to train with world class acrobats to improve your handstands, acro fundamentals, and standing acrobatics.

This weekend consists of 3 tune-up sessions and 5 workshop sessions.

Basic Overview: Tune-Up Sessions
Train like a professional, with a professional. Each tune-up will be limited to 4 pairs (8 people). Coaching will be tailored to your partnership specifically, with drills, stretches, exercises and techniques to help your practice and partnership grow. Every pair and person will get the specialised coaching they need in order to make substantial progress.

Basic Overview: Workshop Sessions
The workshop sessions offer a variety of material that has been specifically designed for our local studio community. You can pick-and-choose sessions, or sign up for the whole experience (as long as you meet the pre-reqs for all sessions).

Tempe AZ 85281

Tune-Up Session 1: Saturday 6:30 — 8:30pm
Tune-Up Session 2: Sunday 9:00 — 11:00am
Tune-Up Session 3: Sunday 3:00 — 5:00pm

You are likely to make more progress in these sessions than you have in months, if not years. You will work with a Cirque Du Soleil hand-to-hand artist and coach with over a decade of experience. The value of focused, personal coaching cannot be overstated and the effect it will have on your practice will be profound.

Each 2 hour session is $169 per pair and will be limited to 4 pairs (8 people). To take a tune-up session, you must come with a partner and you must send an email to [email protected] asking for approval. Please include your name, your partner’s name, experience together, and skills you would like to learn / are working on currently.

Note, this DOES NOT apply to workshop sessions. You can register for the workshop sessions online without pre-approval and don’t need to come with a partner.

=== Handstands (Fri 6-8pm)
Workshop Session 1 out of 5
Pre-reqs: None
Level: All levels
An in-depth exploration of how professional acrobats do handstands. You will see how to distinguish good technique from bad technique, learn training drills, and get individual assessments on your personal handstand from someone who teaches this material across the world.

=== Fundamental Acrobatics + Tumbling (Fri 8:30 — 10:30pm)
Workshop Session 2 out of 5
Pre-reqs: None
Level: All levels
No frills, plenty of spills and definitely some thrills. We will guide you through essential acrobatic movements that will help propel you into acrobatic superstardom, but also help keep you safe. What you learn in this class will, honestly, have a high probability of saving you from a future injury. Learning to fall correctly is so important. It’s what allows us to get back up afterwards.

=== Foot-to-Hand and Hand-to-Hand (Sat 10-12pm)
Workshop Session 3 out of 5
Pre-reqs: 5s foot-to-hand hold, 30s hollow body hold
Level: Beginner/Intermediate
Foot-to-Hand and Hand-to-Hand are foundational elements of any acrobatic partner practice. We will go through everything: from the little, commonly overlooked details that make a successful F2H or H2H, to the main techniques and drills. You will learn some incredibly useful strength and mobility work and we will explain pros/cons of different variations in detail.

=== Standing Hand-to-Hand (Sat 1-3pm)
Workshop Session 4 out of 5
Pre-reqs: Comfort in two-high, 5s hand-to-hand hold, 30s hollow body hold
Level: Intermediate/Advanced
Learn drills and progressions for standing hand-to-hand. If you’ve never done it, we will show you how to get there safely and properly. If you already have a standing hand-to-hand practice, we will pick it apart and help you take it from good to great.

Saturday 3-6pm is Open Play

=== Inlocate (Sun 12-2pm)
Workshop Session 5 out of 5
