acob and Debbie are teaching a 3 day intensive in Atlanta, Georgia.
Session 1: Washing Machines
Date: March 13th
Session Time: 7-10
Barrel Rolls, High Barrel Rolls, Ninja Stars,
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. We have a good one planned. It is beautiful, complex, and challenging, our favorite kind.
Session 2: Whips
Date: March 14th
Session Time: 6-9
Prerequisites: Tarzans, Reverse throne whip with hands
Description: Whips are possibly the most exciting type of L-Base. Flyers whip through the legs of the base very quickly. This takes great skill from base, flyer, and spotter. Jacob and Debbie will ensure that you are challenged in a safe environment.
Session 3: Icarian
Date: March 15th
Session Time: 3-6
Prerequisites: Bird Pops, https://tinyurl.com/y2etynue
Throne Pops, https://youtu.be/1gbFi-kMOgo
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. Along the way Jacob and Debbie have learned effective ways to teach icarian to new students.
Session 4: Dance Lifts
Date: March 15th
Session Time: 7:30-10:30
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.
This is an intermediate workshop. Check the prerequisites for each class. Message us if you have questions.

Jacob got into gymnastics when he was sixteen and ended up teaching for ten years. In 2010 a friend introduced him to acro and he fell in love with this art form right away. He loved how all acrobatics moves are like puzzles which you work out with your friends. Jacob is known for making dozens of washing machines and for putting hundreds of videos on acrobatics on his YouTube channel. In 2014 Jacob became a certified Acro Revolution Teacher in the first ever class of 2014 and in 2017 he helped to teach the 7th Acro Revolution Training. Jacob and Debbie have been doing acro for seven years, teaching together for six years, and have been a couple for four years. They have taught all over the world, from Divine Play to South America to the Israeli Acro Convention.
Debbie started taking gymnastics when she was a kid. Thanks to her training in her youth, she has the strength, balance, and poise to make partner acrobatics very beautiful. Debbie’s long straight legs and pointed toes are the envy of the acro world. Debbie loves the connection and flow she can find with a partner. She can forget about the whole world while flowing in complex acrobatic movements. She has a talent for teaching. Students say that she is sweet and has a good eye for form. She loves practicing until she gets a move perfectly and she has made many of her own new washing machines. In 2017 Debbie became a certified Acro Revolution Teacher. They both live in Springfield, Oregon, USA.
