Two days of progressive acro skills training and creative acrobatic instruction from one of the leading crews in North America. Come for a class, a day, or the whole weekend.
Space is limited. Book early.
Saturday (Session 1): Acro Like a Boss
This session will initiate you to Bossy Flyer's signature style of acrobatic training. Expect a fully-embodied workshop that flips your acro world upside down. This session will give you tools to transform your acro practice, drawing from Capoeira, Circus Acrobatics, Biomechanics, and Improvisation to create a bossy foundation for every acrobat.
Saturday (Session 2): F2H Masterclass
Foot2Hand is a versatile foundation for every acrobat. Unlock techniques to fly and base F2H progressions and machines that will open new avenues of acro investigation. Will be challenging for all levels — beginner to advanced.
Sunday (Session 3): From Bristol with Love — Standing Lifts and Transitions
Cynthia and Taylor share some of their favorite entries to standing poses and kinetic/dance lifts and transitions. These are accessible, challenging, and are sure to shake up what you thought was possible in your acro practice. (**Fine Print: After the workshop, check out some of these moves in their Winnipeg Fringe Show: Terms & Conditions!)
Sunday (Session 4): Ensemble Acrobatics
A primer on ensemble acrobatics to investigate the bossy possibilities with multiple bases, flyers, and structures for those times when more is merrier. We will utilize standing, L-basing, and kinetic structures to group acro bossyness. Warning: This might be my favorite session.
Single session: $40
2 or more $35 per session ($70 for 2, $105 for 3)
Full weekend $120 (4 sessions)

Bossy Flyer is an acro teaching and performance crew who believe in the relentless pursuit of ease in flight. We believe in training harder and flying (and basing) easier. Our work builds progressive training practices and includes improvised acrobatic structures as a way of building a strong foundation for the acrobatic task, a creative mindset, and a strong community.
Cynthia and Taylor are original members of Bossy Flyer, and have toured across the world teaching and performing acrobatics. They have diplomas in circus with a focus on partner acrobatics from Circomedia in Bristol, UK.
