For those of you who are new or rusty, we will have beginner-friendly content and will give more advanced options for those with more experience.

We will be working in small groups with someone spotting each trick to ensure safety! You can come alone or bring a friend. If you prefer to stay in a bubble please come as a three so you can have a base, flyer and spotter for every trick without needing to rotate! Warning, the content of this workshop is very fun and highly addictive!
