Join Christine and Aaron of LIFT School of Acrobatics for a full 2 days of training the art of throwing and catching a flyer! We’ll train progressively toward making high level skills feel accessible, safe, and ready to throw in tempo. Get ready for 2 days of castaways, pancakes, varials, spins, and skill work that will get you sequencing tosses in tempo. We’ll offer skills in every possible plane of movement, and work with both 4 points of contacts skills (base’s hands and feet, castaway, pancake, full twist, star corbet, and more), and 2 point of contact skills (base’s feet only, seated spins, bed ½ twist, bed full twist, varial and related skills, etc).
Included in the training will be skill-specific spotter training so that we move forward safely as a group. Spotters will learn hands on dynamic spotting and when and how to gradually lighten spots to enhance base and flyer learning.
Also included will be practice time on learning how to safely miss skills, i.e. learning when and how to bail out safely at each moment of a skill to maximize safety and pave the way to further movement possibilities.
