From this we can start jumping between bases, more dynamic tricks can begin to form such as base to base cascade. We will finish the workshop with more static tricks such as three man high, stand on the head of the base, one-arm training and one-foot training.

Prerequisite skills:

Stable two men high and hand in hand. Experience in tempo training, pitch and working in a group. Working in a group is a plus, not a requirement. For example, in trio, quartet or more, we will not only work in duos. If you have not worked in a group before, you will do this here.

This workshop with Kaaos Kaamos will cover some thorough techniques where we will look at the lines and shape to begin with. It will start with the base lying down, with the flyer in their hands so we can check the technique before we go to more advanced things. As in the advanced workshop, we will go through the two basic pitches and a few different basics and tricks within the duo acro to get there to pitch from base to base and pitch cascade from base to base.

Prerequisite skills:
