About the event
This 2.5 hour hand balancing workshop will be open to all and focus on building strength, knowledge and confidence in our desires to get upside down. Workshop is held by Evan Josef. Evan is an international movement coach and circus performer specializing in partner acrobatics.
Evan is currently a coach for Partner Acrobatics as well as SAFE Acrobatics and teaches for their intensives and teacher training programs. He now lives in Lithuania where he continues to follow his passions for teaching, music and the performing arts.
We will begin with warm up and conditioning exercises to prepare our minds and bodies for what we need for our handstands. We will then focus a bit on spotting and saftey so that we can more confidently practice our inversions with the support of a partner. Once we understand how to practice in a safe way, we will begin with the fun stuff. We would like to offer the group a combination of handstands on the floor as well as partner acrobatics handstands on each other. Partner acrobatic handstands means doing handstands on different body parts of another person and is often easier than a solo handstand on the floor.
"I believe this mix of movement will be fun, challenging and help build a foundation of knowledge for those who will want to continue with their practice. My goal is for students to leave with more confidence and the ability to train on their own by taking my drills, tips and exercises into their regular movement practice." Evan Josef.
Originally from the United states, Evan began his career as a traveling musician after graduating university with a bachelor's degree in the performing arts and dance.
From 2017 -2021 Evan completed many different teacher trainings and circus programs listed below.
• Acroyoga Montreal 200hr TT
• Partner Acrobatics 200hr TT
• Yogashala yoga 200hr TT
• Pitch Catch circus school of acrobatics 30 Weeks • The Performing acrobatics program of Berlin 8 weeks
It was only later in 2021 that Evan began performing partner acrobatics in shows and events which later lead him to become a successful circus artist.
Evan's style of teaching is very passionate for self expression and attention to detail. He has a strong ability to notice each person in the room and give personal tips to help the individual. He believes the path to success in movement is the practice and understanding of progressions so that our skills become as natural and as easy as walking.
