Handstands and Partner Balance Classes at Tuyo Circus Arts

On your own: Learn how to balance on your hands and how to kick, jump and lift to handstand. Develop strength, flexibility, control and confidence. More advanced students will move on to working on one arm balances and contortion shapes. Handstands are the basis of all acrobatic work and whether you want to excel on the floor or in the air a knowledge of handstand shape will improve your practise.

With a friend: From the most basic acroyoga floor movements through hand to hand and dynamic throws and catches; working with a partner or a group you will develop trust, create amazing shapes and build sequences. Whatever your shape or size there is a role in partner balancing that will suit you. A wonderful and fun way to build strength and fitness.

What to Wear

Please wear dance / exercise clothing that is tight fitting but in which you can move freely.

For aerial work the legs should be covered to avoid burns and grazes and for certain moves a long sleeved top would be useful for the same reason. Shorts are fine for acrobatic work.

If you don't have this sort of clothing then tracksuit trousers and a t-shirt which is long enough to stay tucked in. You may want to bring extra tracksuit type clothing for warm ups

Bare feet, socks, gymnastic type shoes are best for training. We normally run around at the beginning of the warm up and it's fine if you would prefer to do this in trainers.

Please tie long hair back and remove or cover piercings (small ear studs should be fine)

What to Bring

Please bring a drink - but as we are trying to reduce plastic waste, please don't bring single-use plastic bottles.
We have changing rooms with basic facilities (it’s a primary school)
We have good parking availability.
