Join Ali and Henrik in half a day of Handstands and Acrobatic workshops!
HANDSTANDS – Beginner – Advanced
First workshop starts at 10 am and will cover a wide range of exercises to progress withflexibility, strength, alignment, endurance and balance for handstands. Both beginners and more experienced handstanders are welcome to this workshop. With two teachers the class will be divided depending on experience. Come as a complete beginner and try out handstands in a safe supportive environment or come as a seasoned handbalancer and get feedback on your line or on your one arm progressions.
DUO ACROBATICS – Some experience recommended: see prerequisites
Workshop will explore both standing duo acrobatics and L basing. Expect a wide range of excercises, from fun group work to smart
progressions towards hand to hand and dynamic acrobatics. Focus will lie on exercises with a lying base to build up to standing tricks as well as some Icarian pops. Attending with an acro partner is
encouraged but not a necessity.
**About the teachers**
Originally from an artistic gymnastic background, Ali studied at the National Centre for Circus Arts, London, where she specialised in handbalancing. She then went on to perform and create within an English Circus theatre company called Les Femmes Circus, and toured at Brighton Fringe Festival, Perth and Adealide Fringe Festivals Australia, as well as other various events. The past two years she has picked up the love for being a flyer, and is spending her time in Ireland working with Henrik, and performing for Tumble Circus.
At an early age, Henrik started out as a gymnast in Sweden and is today a multi skilled circus performer based in Dublin.He was chosen in 2015 for NEST(New Emerging Street Talents) and later that year created a sailing circus show “Way of the Coconut” which premiered in Dublin Fringe Festival. Since 2016 he has been working regularly with Irish circus companies Fanzini productions and Tumble Circus. He is one of the organisers and the initiator for Irish Acro, Irelands first and only acrobatics convention.
