What is it about ?

Beginner to intermediate level, one day workshop
Easy way up, soft way down- feeling what’s right for you. Partnering and group work to find your balance and confidence in basic acro positions, fluid movement, and Contact Improvisation.
Working from a baseline score of specific exercises, gentle techniques and games, we’ll incorporate breath, body awareness, and muscle tonus to improve somatic sensitivity and listening skills. We’ll also combine core strength exercises to train and strengthen our bodies and reflexes so to progress more confidently and safely into giving and receiving weight. As well as static poses and transitions, you’ll be basing, lifting, and flying into the amazing fun world of 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. I trained in combat sports from an early age, then went on to study psychology at U.Mass Boston U.S.A. I’ve 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.
Since 1997 I’ve been part of the Contact Improvisation and dance community in Belgium and more recently the acro /acroyoga community. In I opened my own dance studio and began hosting and supporting a variety of guest teachers, workshops, classes and jams. I've been teaching movement skills, dance, and Contact Improvisation for adults and children since , and love exploring dance, acrobatic movement and improvisation in the context of self and group identity and as basis of social inclusion and evolution. A passionate believer in people, I love the power of play.
