Upcoming workshop in München: Aerial Hoop and/or Trapeze Intermediate Foundations: Momentum Moves, Balances, and Hangs

This workshop will focus on three fundamental groups of tricks on aerial hoop and/or trapeze: momentum moves (beats, monkey rolls, hip circles, elbow circles); balances (front balances, back balances and variations, bum balances); and hangs (toe hangs, heel hangs, elbow hangs, neck hangs). Students will be given exercises to work toward acquiring all of these skills during their own personal training.

Wonderful organization and awesome flyer created by Salt & Pepper Artists, München (https://www.instagram.com/saltandpepper.artists/)!
