Discover Arm Balancing

Arm balances can be as challenging as they are fun. In this show, we explore creative and engaging ways to incrementally work our way into arm balances using props and other supportive preparatory poses, helping you feel what it's like to take weight on your hands and arms and fly, even before you are ready to take flight. Along the way, you will challenge your mind and your body, gain strength and flexibility, and, of course, have fun!
