Come and have a go on your own or in a group. Try out both Chinese Pole and Acrobatics in this two hour Combo Sunday Taster...
Chinese poles are vertical poles of aluminum on which circus performers climb, slide down and hold poses. These poles are generally between 3 and 9 metres in height and approximately 3 to 4 inches in diameter.
Acrobatics is known as the 'king of sports'; it is said there is no other sport that can't be undertaken better with a grounding in acrobatics! Using our air tumble track, skills will include: handstands, cartwheels, backflips, somersaults and trampette. A significant portion of each class will be dedicated to handstands as learning how to perform a handstand properly is one of the most important steps to becoming a good circus performer, who seem as at home walking on their hands as on their feet. Develop core strength, balance, stamina and agility.
Appropriate clothing and footwear must be worn for Chinese Pole. Students are advised to wear long johns or leggings under old jeans with a belt. If you are trying the class for the first time we recommend that you wear plimsoles, soft flexible trainers or Feiyues (it is a good idea to find some shoes a size smaller than you would normally wear). If you would like to continue training in Chinese Pole, we would strongly recommend that you purchase professional Chinese Pole footwear such as Tabi boots, which can be purchased online (ebay is a great source).
