Weekend Immersion: Hand Balancing

About this Immersion

Join Fleeky in in-depth Intermediate Handstand Workshop. During this time we will find out where you are with your inversions, what your goals are for your practice, and how you can go push your handstands to the next level. You will come out of this workshop with new tools for training, and hopefully a new perspective on handstands, too. This workshop will partner with the “Creative Hand Balancing” workshop scheduled for January, which will address creative and performative aspects of the hand balancing form.

Fleeky Flanco has been performing and teaching hand balancing all over the world, from the radioactive ruins of Washington DC to the art apocalypse currently imploding in San Francisco. Fleeky has increasingly become known as the “Thomas Mann” of frontbending (klishnig) for a unique embodiment of modern and classical frontbending styles, with teachers that include Master Coach Xia Ke Min, National Treasure of Mongolia contortionist Serchma Byambaa, and Acrobatic Visionary Dominik (The Swiss) Wyss. Fleeky is a co-founder of Circus Automatic and of the Royal Russian Kung fu Circus Training Academy of Heaven Mountain. Fleeky has performed in numerous European venues including KrystallPalast, GOP and Wintergarten, and has produced and directed circus in San Francisco, Chicago and beyond, and is happy to call Vermont home.
