Building with Blox in Utah

  • Root to Rise 955 W West Promontory, Farmington, Utah 84025 (map)

FRIDAY - 7:00pm-9:30pm
The handstand is the backbone of a strong acrobatics practice. An art in itself, it also conditions both the base and the flyer to be more successful in partner acrobatics.The role of each significant body part will be identified, from fingers to toes, constructing the ideal acrobatic handstand. Then you will handstand all over each other, discovering helpful handholds all over the body.
*Freebalancing a handstand is not a prerequisite. Yogis, dancers, and anyone feeling embodied is encouraged to attend!!

SATURDAY - 11:00am-1:30pm
Dutch Acro is a dated acrobatic style focusing on dynamic movements and standing work. It's extremely fun and accessible, though it can easily be taken to advanced levels. In this section we will go through a series of progresions peaking with trio swinging, with two bases and one flyer.

Both Sessions | Single Session
Day Of: $65 | $35
Advanced: $55 | $30
Studio Members: $50 | $25
