Are you up for 2 extra days of Acro with Jacob & Debbie?
After the Dutch AcroYoga Festival Summer ’21, there is the Post-Festival!
2 full days, with:
- Washing Machines
- Whips & Whippops
- Standing Flow (Dance Lifts)
- Evening Jam time
Are you in for more Washing Machines, Whips, Icarians and Standing Flows guided by the two fantastic teachers Jacob and Debbie? Then attend the Post-Festival! The Post-Festival extends your Acro festival with another 2 days of training. If you combine it with the main event (Dutch AcroYoga Festival Summer 2021) you will have 9 days full of Acro! The Post-Festival will be held on August 22 – 23 at the same venue as the DAYF Summer ’21.
Jacob and Debbie are coming all the way from the USA. They have a huge amount of experience in teaching AcroYoga in various style and on different levels and they will share their skills with a select group of people (maximum 30).
For the intermediate and advanced AcroYogi or Acrobat.
There will be 4 main topics during the Post-festival: Washing Machines, Whips, Icarians, Standing Flow (Dance Lifts).
Make sure you meet 90% of all the prereq’s (check them at the topics below!)
If you don’t meet the pre-req’s, you’re more than welcome at the main festival (and train for this awesome stuff ;-)).
Description: Acrobats underestimate the importance of washing machines. After all, Jacob and Debbie fell in love with acro and with each other while doing them. Through the study of these machines you build up a movement vocabulary which transfers into other areas of acro. Experienced l-basers can flow seamlessly from one pose to the next in complex acrobatic arrangements. They can create original works of acro art by communicating only through touch. In this session we will focus on machines which emphasize grace and beauty: symmetrical machines made by Jacob and Debbie.
Reverse Throne Whips https://youtu.be/GhIfKbdHDsc
Description: Whips are a more specialized and challenging type of l-base. They require sensitivity to very fine movements. They can be difficult to teach, but Debbie and Jacob have years of experience breaking down these moves and making them accessible. In this class we will go past what is usually taught–tarzans and throne whips–and move on to some twisting popping whips.
Description: Icarian is named after Icarus from the greek myth of Daedalus and Icarus. Icarus is the one who flew too close to the sun. Don’t worry. We will use spotters! Icarian is full release, meaning it is the most exciting type of acro by far. Debbie and Jacob have been doing a lot more icarian lately—meeting every weekend to train with other Icarian friends. Along the way Jacob and Debbie have learned effective ways to teach icarian to new students. We try to go beyond the usual intro to Icarian class and teach new material. You will learn the technique required to execute them confidently and safely.
Standing Flow (Dance Lifts)
Description: Jacob and Debbie have poured through the internet and learned from many teachers to find all the best dance lifts! This is an entirely different kind of acro. In standing acro there are a lot of static holds. The flyer moves up and down in ways similar to how a weightlifter does a power clean. Dance lifts are different because they use momentum to lift the flyer up and down in more graceful movement, similar to ballet. In this class you will first practice individual dance lifts and later put them together into a flow.

Jacob and Debbie
We’re super happy that again we get amazing teachers over to the Netherlands. Like we said, the Post-Festival will be led by Jacob Brown and Debbie Collis. They’re flying in all the way from the USA and will be teaching 4 workshops over 2 days during the Post-Festival.
They love to teach flowy washing machines, Icarians, whippops, dance lifts and so much more.
