Partner acrobatics covers a wide range of disciplines, centering around tricks performed most often by two or three people. These disciplines include acroyoga, icarian games, standing partner acro, banquine and toss. Most of these originated in the circus but their popularity in recent years has exploded all over Europe, the US and Asia. Acroyoga leads this trend, where as skill is developed people often start training standing acro and icarian games. The scene for partner acro is small in New Zealand and has a relatively low level, but these classes are here to grow the scene and play catch up with the rest of the world.
All levels are welcome in our classes, which will start at the basics and quickly move forward at the pace of the class. You will learn a wide range of tricks in this class and how to be a good spotter, ensuring the safety of those practicing with you. The bulk of your skill development will come from practicing tricks in the open jam sessions.
Sam Jameson will lead these classes. He has been training partner acro for the past three years in Europe, specialising in icarian games, whips and whip pops and standing partner acro. He has completed a 200 hour advanced partner acro program in Belgium and trained with top teachers around Europe.
