We will be working on supporting (basing) and flying in a variety of postures, learning how to use (as well as develop) strength, stability and balance. Each class will offer a focus on different moves, allowing you to slowly build up your repertoire.

Now remember, this class is all about having fun and possibly learning something about yourself in the process.
