Handstand Foundations

This class introduces athletes to the most important body position in gymnastics, cheerleading and circus: the handstand. A huge focus is placed on proper technique, core and upper body strengthening and the correct alignment required to perform a variety of handstands.

Athletes also learn counterbalancing techniques and how to exit a handstand in all directions safely. The finer details such as where to look and what each part of the body should be doing will be addressed as well.

This class is ideal for:

  • Anyone and everyone who is involved in tumbling, acrobatics or partner tricks
  • Those experiencing pain and weakness in their wrists and shoulders
  • Those who wish to learn hand balancing
