For the past 30 years he has run acrobatic courses in Rotterdam, Holland. He is a well known teacher at a lot of acrobatic festivals all over Europe and beyond. He specialized himself in icarian games and hand to hand tricks. Workshops with Paul are guaranteed to be fun as you discover and explore more partner tricks, transitions & sequences.
The workshops acrobatics with Paul consists a wide range of acrobatic figures in L basing as well in S basing. Additionally we will work on connecting several tricks to sequences. With his inspiring way of teaching it will be challenging for all participants. We will work on hand to hand, feet to hand, icarian games and lots of other nice tricks and movements. By using the right techniques you will learn to do the tricks with ease and using of less energy and power. Paul loves to stimulate the participants with his infinite energy and enthusiasm so that you can push your limits with confidence. In Paul’s work balance and the right body tension are important themes rather than pure strength.
The level of the workshop will be adjusted to the level of the groups as much as possible but it will be challenging for everybody. For the more difficult tricks we will often work on pre-exercises to learn the basics of movements and positions first before we do the real thing.
And most importantly we are going to have a lot of fun.
