Grounded Acrobatics 
This class will explore the principals of gravity, groundedness, and flow, while moving us through acrobatic elements. Inspired by Flying Low, we will use spirals to move in and out of the floor, while contracting and expanding the whole body or different parts of it in order to create smooth pathways. Using our experience with Release Techniques, we will approach acrobatic elements like lifts, balances, handstands and aerial jumps, to introduce dynamics and risk taking, while also working with gravity, momentum, and falling to aid in our exploration of flow. 

Questions from TPRM:

What makes this class a training for dance professionals? The training is created for dancers who have done similar practices and for those who are comfortable being in a physical and dynamic class.

Is this an improvisation class, a class where we learn phrases, or both? The class invites dancers to explore a wider range of movements and expression while emphasizing strength, flexibility, and body awareness. Dancers are able to find their own fluidity in their movements through improvisation tasks and set material.
