Details about the class

Hand balancing is one of the foundational skills of circus disciplines giving you a good sense of balance and body awareness, strong core and upper body and great fitness.

This class is a dynamic all round body workout, a good challenge and great fun! Hand balancing, the foundation of acrobatics, is the art of balancing on your hands.

We slowly build up strength and confidence throughout the class from headstands, and physical preparation, through to learning to balance against the wall and on your own, building up to a variety of balances on handstand canes 1m off the floor as you advance.

You will gradually progress alignment and form, balance, strength and endurance, as well as improve your body awareness when you are upside down. Learn this fine and focused art, and become more aware of what your body can do.

If a participant is under 18, our disclaimer must be signed by a parent or an adult of 18+.

Students are advised to wear comfortable clothing that they can move easily in.
