Requirements: –

  • Being able to base and fly star and reverse star; 
  • Have a familiarity with at least three washing machines and or a flying sequence with at least ten transitional moves; and 
  • A willingness to base and fly all our sequences. 

You can come on your own or come as an acro duo.
