This session will focus on Icarian pops and other dynamic L-Base pops. We will break down the fundamentals of big L-base pops and give you the technique needed to continue to train towards advanced pops. Material will be customized to student's individual skill level and can be tailored to accommodate those just starting their Icarian practice to those who have many dynamic pops already under their belt. Depending on ability, skills such as: pops to and from reverse star, Icarian to and from chair, hands free Icarian pops, pops to extended foot to hand, and pops through hand to hand will be explored. Already have pops down? We'll teach you tempo pops, pop flows, and highly advanced Icarian.

SESSION TWO: 4:00-7:00 PM (3 hrs) - WHIPS!

This session will teach you the techniques of whips that are essential for mastering all levels of whips. Nick and Lydia have spent hundreds of hours breaking down whips and coming up with many unique ques and progressions to help you master these difficult skills! Depending on ability, whips with hands, whips without hands, whip flows and sequences, whips connected to advanced poses such as needle, and whips connected to pops will be explored.
