Masterclass Hand to hand
In this workshop we will teach a variety of basic pair acrobatic skills ranging from beginner level static moves to hand to hand tricks considering the level of the students. We can teach skill levels, from beginners to advanced.
The workshop progresses from the simple exercises of receiving weight and moving with a partner, to more complex acrobatic exercises. With the middle level student’s the exercises lead gradually to the final combination of H2H or F2H basics.
In the workshop we will explore the ways to improve the skills using the right technique. We will make warm up and strength exercises together with the partner which will improve the connection and rhythm with the partner. We are going to use elements from various techniques like pair- and H2H acrobatics, some contact improvisation, personal movement research with a partner.
We will encourage the students to exceed their level by helping with the new tricks, giving tips to find a right technique and making the movements step by step
