This workshop is designed to develop the strength, flexibility, and balance that are the foundation for acrobatics and circus arts. We’ll work to increase the body awareness, coordination, strength, and balance needed to invert into handstand safely, and you’ll take home tips to practice on your own.

Workshop will include a thorough warm-up, targeted stretches, full-body conditioning, and handstand instruction. Strength-building exercises will be using your own body weight, so they can be done anywhere, no equipment needed.

Prerequisites: Comfortable putting weight on your hands

More about Spiral

Fatefully kissed by stardust from the rings of Saturn, Spiral developed an uncommon affinity for circles and a passion for revolutionary motion. Equal parts Sorceress, Circus Artist, Whirling Dervish, and Ninja, she brings the kind of tingle to the spine that can only be wrought as a direct result of tireless training, incredible skills, and occasional conspiracy with otherworldly forces.

Emanating an electric presence for groups of 20 or 20,000, Spiral has mesmerized audiences from the catwalk in Hong Kong, to galleries in New York, to nightclubs in Vienna. A multi-disciplinary circus artist, Spiral performs hoops, contact juggling, levitating wand, acrobatics, living statue, aerial hoop and aerial fabric as well as multi-prop fire and LED shows. A seasoned, professional performer, Spiral travels worldwide to perform, teach, and inspire.

Spiral has been practicing hoops and other forms of object manipulation since 2001, and circus arts since 2007. A graduate of the 2008/9 Professional Track program at the New England Center for Circus Arts, Spiral has been living in San Francisco ever since and advancing her training with a variety of seasoned acrobatic and aerial coaches.
