Training Week-End with Tobias Bader (NL)

November 30, 2018 - December 2, 2018


>> The week-end is sold out! Contact us for waiting list if somebody cancels last minute!
“Acro Basel” organizes an ‘advanced’ Partneracrobatic Training-Week-End with Tobias Bader (Amsterdam, NL) in Basel from November Friday evening 30th to Sunday evening December 2nd 2018! The focus will be on standing acrobatics.

You can but you don’t have to come with a dedicated training partner. However, we will try to balance the inscriptions between bases and flyers. We expect this workshop to fill up quickly so don’t hesitate to sign up!

TOBIAS BADER has an enormous and detailed knowledge about Partneracrobatics/Acrobalance tricks and training technique as well as “Rock’n Roll tricks” & Dance Acro. He has a yearlong teaching background and knows how to break down a trick and how to provide the necessary cues for both base and flyer. Apart from that he’s a singer-songwriter and a super nice and sweet personality and you definitely don’t want to miss the opportunity to train a whole week-end with him and a fun group of acrobats!
Friday, 18h30-21h00
