AcroYogaDance will allow you to explore and express your dance/movement ability in a way that will amaze you and those who see it.
You will gain an extremely rare and sought-after skill to a high level. We will fast track your AcroYoga learning into hours/days instead of the usual months/years attending classes and workshops learning with beginners who are also learning. This is an incredible opportunity for the right person.
AcroYoga is becoming extremely popular on social media and the real world especially when expressed creatively and performed to a high level which is what you will be trained to do.
Full training will be given to the successful candidate.
* Please note: We are not able to pay you while we train you, but we are willing to train you at our expense. You will be taught AcroYogaDance as a flyer (person lifted in the air). Your coach and partner for the project is the co-founder of AcroYogaDance himself. A private coaching programme like this isn't an option to purchase. We mention this for dancers who understandably might have a policy of paid castings only. You might agree this is a very unusual scenario. Probably a once in a lifetime opportunity, to be coached by/ perform with one of the co-founders of this unique art form, in what promises to be a stunningly beautiful piece.
You do NOT need any AcroYoga experience for this project, in fact, it's probably better we can coach you from scratch. Full training will be given to the successful candidate. We're looking for someone creative, with an eye for detail, who makes intelligent decisions and willing to try something new. Someone passionate about movement and creating original art, we believe this will be something special.
There's the possibility to work with us again in the future if this project is successful, there are many more projects that could follow, including paid and artistic film, photography, performances and training to co-teach this practice in beautiful parts of the world like Thailand and Bali, where we have a teacher training taking place in December. We have a dedicated AcroYoga training studio at London Bridge, UK and are establishing a new training school in Canggu, Bali.
We have a tried a tested coaching method to tap into your existing dance/ movement skills enabling you to perform beautiful AcroYogaDance choreography. We use video as a visual learning tool during your training, so that you can observe and better understand your own progress. This training content will also provide additional media you are welcome to use in your portfolio or share on social media if you wish, people often do, but from our point of view, this initial coaching content is all about preparing you for the main video project.
You will gain a good understanding and ability in the foundations of AcroYogaDance and will learn to perform a unique, specific choreography, which has not been seen before. Again, this accelerated, private coaching programme isn't available to buy, if it were it would not be a small investment. You will have some impressive photos to walk away as well as the final video. Hopefully, this will be the first of many creative projects.
*You will NOT be required to pay for this training or media.
*We can NOT pay you while we train you.
