More about the classes:
The beginner AcroFlow® course is ideal for beginners who are interested in developing their understanding of, and ability in this type of physically challenging yet playful work. Combining elements of acrobatics, yoga, post-modern/contemporary dance, partnering and contact improvisation, we will playfully explore new movement pathways, while developing strength, coordination, endurance, flexibility, and awareness throughout the entire body. The classes will include theory of alignment and weight transfer with your partners, warm-up and conditioning to develop your physical capacity to safely practice with confidence, specific techniques and intelligent corporal pathways of descent for safe transitions out of flows (falling), and of course, lots of fun acro' practice.
More about the instructor:
A skateboarder since childhood, yoga practitioner since 2002, professional contemporary dancer since 2003, and yoga instructor since 2008, I have been exploring, performing, and instructing techniques on the development of heightened awareness, towards the development of body mastery through a multitude of styles and forms. As a freelance performing artist, I have been performing this acrobatic style of partnering work on stage internationally since 2003, originally through the choreographies of Hae Kyung Lee (Hae Kyung Lee & Dancers), Miguel Olvera, and Claudia Lopez to name a few, and also through my own choreographic work. My teaching approach is therefore focused on assisting the practitioner in the development of their kinesthetic awareness (an awareness of where their body is in space), proprioceptive awareness (an awareness of the alignment of one's body), and the capacity of the practitioner to physically «listen» to their partner, sensing both their own as well as their partner’s shifts in center of gravity, to allow for the development of exciting and safe choreographed (pre-determined) or improvised acrobatic flow sequences.
