ACROBATICS WORKSHOPS – January 11, 18 and 25, 2015

Posted: December 12, 2014 in Uncategorized

The Ottawa Stilt Union is offering three workshops in partner acrobatics! 


Start off the New Year in style by learning new skills while getting back in shape after the Holiday feasts.

These workshops are aimed at performers who wish to add to their creative toolboxes and learn new skills.

You can choose to take one, two, or all three workshops, depending on your interests.

Each workshop will last 3 hours.

Introduction workshop: For participants who wish to learn the basics of partner acrobatics: balancing work, communication, and hand-to-hand tricks. This is a prerequisite for anyone who would like to take the following two workshops.

Acro 1: A follow-up to the intro workshop. Participants will learn new tricks, will get a chance to go further in their exploration, and to tackle new challenges.

Acro 2: Participants will learn more advanced acrobatic tricks, and get a chance to create short performances, using the skills they learned in all three workshops.


Early-bird registration (before December 20th), and student discount: $80 per workshop, $180 for all three

Regular price for registration after December 20th : $90 per workshop, $210 for all three
