Who is it for?
Level 1-2 beginners /intermediates

What is it about?
Afternoon training workshop

Playing with a baseline score of specific movements and games, we’ll also combine core strength exercises to strengthen our bodies and reflexes. You’ll progress more confidently and safely into flying, lifting, basing, giving and receiving weight, and mixing it all up. From static poses to fluid transitions, welcome to the amazing fun world of acro dance, fluid acrobatics and contact improvisation.

Who am I?

Tommy Russo (USA/BE)

A poet at heart, as a child I couldn’t sit still, always exploring and practicing. First trained in combat sports (mainly boxing) I then went on to study psychology at U.Mass Boston U.S.A.  I’ve since practiced/ trained in folk and ballroom dance, Drama Therapy, Postural Integration, Shintaido (dance form of Aïkido), Savate (French kick boxing), Clown Work, Family Constellations, Contemporary dance, Alexander Technique, play fight, partnering techniques and Acroyoga/Acro.

I’ve been part of the Contact Improvisation and dance communities in Belgium since 1997 and more recently the acro /acroyoga community. In 2003 I opened my own dance studio and began hosting and supporting a variety of guest teachers, workshops, classes and jams. As well as performing, I’ve been teaching movement skills, dance, and Contact Improvisation for adults and children both locally and internationally since 2013.

Exploring dance, acrobatic movement and improvisation in the context of self and group identity and as a basis for social inclusion and evolution. I’m a passionate believer in people, and love the power of play.
