Contortion & Handstands Workshop

Contortion & Handstands Workshop 

Suitable for all levels.

Pixie LeKnot, one of the UK’s top contortionists and resident LDA teacher, invites you to join her for this special 2hr Contortion & Handstands workshop at Sadler’s Wells.

Thinking about pushing your boundaries? 

This workshop will consist of contortion stretches for legs, upper back, neck and shoulders to improve backbend safely.  The class will guide you through basic contortionist skills to more advanced exercises in a supportive and safe environment. Through a range of individual and partner exercises, you will safely get to extend your range of motion. So, whether you’re a beginner or have some experience, this mixed level masterclass will challenge you and develop your skills.

The workshop will also include techniques for handstands, walkovers, balances and other contortion shapes and tricks.  

You will benefit from lots of teacher contact to advise and perfect your moves. This workshop is perfect for increasing your flexibility and strength. Great for acrobatics, but also other aerial skills and other dance forms, including pole dancing.
You will learn to achieve levels of flexibility you would never have thought possible – in a fun environment without pressure.
Dates: 31 March & 5 May 7.45-9.45pm at Sadler’s Wells. 
Cost: £25 for the 2 hr workshop.
