➤PERPENDICULARITY: the art of hand balancing

We will explore various approaches to hand balancing through the aspects of different movement skills (circus, gymnastics, capoeira, contortion, yoga and contemporary dance). In many ancient cultures hand balancing developed differently. Few examples: military training in ancient Greece; old paintings from ancient Egypt shows dancers doing handstands; Chinese acrobatics dates back 2,500 years (Han dynasty) and is considered a national art form; in Hindu culture, the handstand has been incorporated into the practice of yoga. It is seen as an essential practice in many martial arts (Shaolin kung fu, Karate, Judo, Jiu jitsu...).

Workshop segments:
1. PREPARATION:
- specific hand balancing warm-up
- programming your body for hand balancing
- emphasis on forearms, shoulders, core and legs
2. POSITIONING:
- palms/shoulders/core techniques
- pointing common mistakes and removing them
3. ENTRANCE:
- with spotter
- using the wall
- dynamic entrance (wall and freestanding)
- press to handstand
- using different support points (crocodile/qdr/forearms/head)
4. HANDBALANCING IN PARTNER ACROBATICS:
- static positions in pairs/threesome

- hand balancing transitions through space in pairs

Benefits:
Handbalancing practice helps us to understand our bodies and overcome the fear of new and unknown, rooted deep inside of our mind. It increases the shoulder joint range of motion and strengthens the whole body (in gymnastics, press to handstand is considered the king of skills).

Injuries, age, or other physical impairments will not limit your participation in this workshop, whose goal is to discover the individual movement potential of each participant. Beginners, as well as experienced movers, actors and dancers, acrobats, are welcome.

➤ ENTER THE SPIRAL: acrobatic flow

The goal of the workshop is to give you the necessary building blocks with which you can create unique flow - by connecting transitions, rolls, jumps, dives and acrobatic movements in the endless continuum. We will use various techniques from contemporary dance, capoeira and circus acrobatics; but most important we will strive to economize the energy flow from one element to the other, through the effortless use of the spiral.

Benefits:
Developing multi-dimensional movements; better understanding and use of surroundings; out-of-the-box movement (using and connecting the moves from different disciplines); economising motion, strength, and power.

Injuries, age, or other physical impairments will not limit your participation in this workshop, whose goal is to discover the individual movement potential of each participant. Beginners, as well as experienced movers, actors and dancers, acrobats, are welcome.

➤ ABOUT US:
Fluid balance helps you to become more aware of your body in any situation/position and lets you feel how balance flows dynamically across the axis of the body. The aim is to explore the possibilities of smooth transitions between movement and stillness. We discover the individual movement potential of each participant. Fluid balance is suitable for all body types.
