You’ll never look at a chair the same way again! Elevate your sitting to flip, twist and fly in the middle of your living room. We’ll explore dance moves and acrobatic poses using this basic household item. Then we’ll put it all together in a short fun combo to show off at your next outdoor picnic, family gathering or zoom business meeting! All welcome to join, some experience with going upside down and arm balancing will be useful but not required.
Equipment: Preferably a folding chair, but could be substituted for any chair with a low-average back and no side arms.
