Basic Hand to Hand Workshop – 90 min

In our basic hand to hand class we teach the fundamentals of partner acrobatics, and is a good class for anyone working on or interested in partner work. We do not focus on specific tricks, but rather on how to work with your partner, how to train safely, and what things to look out for while training. If you are new to partner work, we will give you a solid foundation, and if you have been working for a while, we will help you clean up your technique on the level you are at.
