In Search of Balance - A workshop of play and exploration in balancing

Tuesday 19th September

5pm - 6.30pm 



Balance [uncountable, singular] 

"a situation in which different things exist in equal, correct or good amounts" 


Did you know that the ability to comfortably balance on one leg for 10 seconds, has correlated with a lessened risk of falls and health issues in later life? 


Come and find your balance with Sky High Arts. In this class we will find our centre point and explore the fun and enjoyment in moving away from it. 


Beginning with ground-based balance exercises, wobble-board, balances on exercise ball, and the rola bola, we will explore the 'core' and the micro adjustments needed to maintain a state of balance. 

For the more daring, we will then explore the fear that comes with moving away from our solid footing by playing in the air on slack rope and aerial equipment. Here we will learn how to extend the principles of balance to incorporate external moving parts. 


This workshop explores how through playing with our solid boundaries and tilting-points we can maintain a state of balance in day to day life. 


Suitable for all levels, this class will have something for everyone.


Please contact Pema Bradley-Peer if you have any questions regarding booking
