Here’s what we’ll be practicing:

With roots in the Greek words for "walk on toes" and "climb high", acrobatics is one of the foundational circus disciplines. Here, gymnastic feats requiring a high degree of technical skill are executed.

Pair acrobatics
A combination of acrobatics and balance where two or more people lift, balance, throw and catch one another. The performers who do the lifting/catching/carrying, are called bases or catchers; the performers who are lifted/thrown/carried are called flyers.

Juggling is all about throwing and manipulating objects. Many jugglers call themselves "object manipulators". Using their objects, jugglers draw shapes and patterns in the air.

Tightwire is a form of equilibristics, the art of balancing. Within the circus arts, several disciplines are based on balancing skills, of which tightrope is perhaps the one most often associated with the art of equilibrium. Balancing on a rope is combined with acrobatics, advanced step combinations and dance.

Aerial acrobatics
Acrobatics performed in the air using equipment such as a trapeze, rope/wire or silks/fabrics.
