Advanced Acrobatics: Contortion

Contortion is part of the Advanced Acrobatics Program at KaliAndrews Dance Company in Ottawa

Contortion class is for the acrobat who wants to specialize in bending the body into unusual poses. In acrobatic dance, total control over one’s body throughout an extreme range of motion is required in order to master the necessary skills. Also, excessive flexibility can prove to become extremely valuable in many sports and activities, such as gymnastics, martial arts, dance, hockey and yoga.

Our Contortion classes are designed for “extra bendy” individuals; upon entering our Contortion class, students have already nurtured their individual flexibility and will continue to enhance the beauty of bending. Participants will study contortion techniques and will focus on developing more strength and flexibility to support their tricks/skills. Contortion class is not a performance based class, therefore the participants have the opportunity to continue their training for the full duration of each term.
