About LIFT Immersion Program
Welcome to the LIFT School of Acrobatics Immersion Program!
The LIFT Immersion program is designed for committed acrobatic students who wish to take their practice to the next level in the company of like-minded people. During the 3 part, 90-hour immersion, students will receive a full spectrum of information from beginner to advanced level acrobatics. The immersion program is separated into 3 parts: Fundamentals, Intermediate, and Advanced. Each program is progressive and is designed not only to create a fun and empowering experience, but also to teach students how to train for success outside of the classroom.
LIFT Fundamentals Immersion (part 1)
The Fundamentals Immersion is a 5 day, 30 hour training for students brand new to partner acrobatics, more advanced students looking to improve their skills at a basic level, and teachers looking for a walk-through of skills and techniques to offer to their students. The content includes a set of 45 skills for raw beginners, intermediate beginners, and advanced beginners, and offers a range of L-Base (supine base) and standing acro at each level. Safety practices, spotting, effective and compassionate communication practice, and interpersonal skills are also a priority in this experience. It is not necessary to come with a partner, though it’s a great idea to come with one or with a group of people that will continue to work together after the immersion.
Prerequisites to attend:
- 10 Push ups
- 15 second handstand at the wall
- No major injuries
LIFT Intermediate Immersion (part 2)
The Intermediate Immersion is a 5-day, 30 hour training for students who are ready to play and take the acrobatics practice to the next level! During the immersion, students will be introduced to intermediate level L-Basing washing machines, standing acrobatics, next-level solo tumbling, and handstand skills building on the previous immersion. Level-appropriate standing acrobatic skills including counterbalances, lifts, and preparatory elements for standing hand to hand and foot to hand skills will also be a component of training each day. If you are confident and stable in fundamental skills, this week-long offering will be the perfect segue into a world of acrobatic movement!
