Advanced Acrobatics: Stunting & Acrobatic Partnering
Stunting is part of the Advanced Acrobatics Program at KaliAndrews Dance Company in Ottawa
This class focuses on acrobatic stunts, partnering and group work. Partnered acrobatic kills that involve elements seen mastered by professional circus artists.
Stunting consists of one person acting as a flier and another as a porter. The porter remains in contact with the floor and the flier is balanced in the air. The porter may move between a variety of positions including lying on the floor, crouching, standing and kneeling. The flier may be balanced on the base’s feet, hands, shoulders, knees, thighs, back or combinations of these, in a variety of positions and orientations including horizontal, vertical or even upside down. These classes are fun, energetic and rewarding all at the same time!
If that didn’t confuse you then we are impressed! Check out our Stunting demo on CTV Morning Live for an example of the stunting work produced in classes at KADC.
