Acrobatic conditioning is back for 2018! Let’s get strong together 🙂

It’s free for Wed 1/3. $5 suggested donation after total for class and jam. (Donation goes to cover space rental) For those who go to Aerial Arts Acrofit with Rafi 5:45pm-6:45pm can come to jam for FREE after.

All acro requires consistent base skills in strength, flexibility, timing, coordination, communication and safety. This requires a class that focuses on not necessarily showing new skills in flow, dynamic transitions, but rather a class that focused on the foundation so that you can jam and practice with confidence after.

6-7pm is open level conditioning
7-8pm is open practice/jam

Train with good community support. Let’s lift each other to new heights. No previous acro experience necessary.
