Advanced Acrobatics — Stunting & Tumbling
Stunting & Tumbling Classes
Stunting & Tumbling are part of the Advanced Acrobatics Program at KaliAndrews Dance Company. This class focuses on acrobatic balances, partnering and group work, including skills 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!
Tumbling combines strength, power, agility and coordination that can captivate audiences and bring them to the edge of their seats. Tricks such as somersaults, handsprings, aerials, round-offs, dive rolls and more are performed without the use of specialized apparatus. Students can enjoy a safe atmosphere as they learn their technique on our Tumble Track and then move to the floor once they master their skills.
