06 May Acrobat Stuck At Home
Creative challenge time! We invite you to join us and explore these times through our hashtag #acrobatstuckathome.
While we realise that this is minor in the grand scheme of things, as acrobatic performers it’s a real issue to not be able to train together.
By the time the Stay At Home Directive came into practice, we had already set up virtual training sessions with our pool of performers. It’s been a remote way for us to train together and keep our spirits up.
Out of these sessions has grown our creative photo challenge: #acrobatstuckathome. As a lighthearted response, a way of venting our frustrations, and hopefully a chance to bring smiles to people’s faces.
We’ve had our Youth Programme participants share pictures with us, and we’ve really enjoyed seeing all the different responses, from our community and beyond.
Tag us on Instagram and Twitter, use our hashtag, and have a peek at what our community of acrobats’ responses were as inspiration. You don’t have to be an acrobat to join the photo challenge – #notanacrobat
We can’t wait to see what you come up with, stay safe and stay strong.
(Please bear in mind that some of the images we have shared and will share are done by professional acrobats, so please don’t try those at home if you’re not an acrobat. If you are an acrobat make sure have a spotter!)
