Partner Acro Workshop with Tom Mortl
Tom is very skilled at teaching various levels and challenging people at their level.
You will learn different ways to go in and out of tricks. Depending on your level we will work on h2h or refining your h2h as well as f2h (standing).
Next to that you will learn creative tricks and moves which you can include in your own practice.
The focus of this workshop will be on using the right technique, finding the most effective way to do tricks and learning some cool elements.
Participants will learn how to break down complex skills and how to work with dynamic energy.
The level of the workshop will be adjusted to the participants and will cover different levels. If some drills are too hard, there will be an easier pre-exercise, if some tricks are too easy, then there is always a way to make it difficult for you.

Tom is a professional circus artist and teacher who started training Dutch acrobatics, upgraded it with Ukrainian technique, refined his work under tutelage of various experienced coaches and incorporated elements of dance and martial arts in his movement.
Some of his teachers are: Jim and Det, Wybren Wouda (ACAPA; Codarts), Slava Kukuskin (Kiev; Moscow; ESAC).
Tom was born as the only German who is not on time, in Bavaria (Germany). After trying almost every sport he got hooked to acrobatics at the age of 18.
During his chemical engineering studies he started performing in various groups, duos, trios all over Europe.
After an early-life-crisis in 2014 he decided to quit his studies, (which made his parents really happy) and went as a guest student to the circus school ACAPA in Tilburg where he graduated together with Ayla Moes who is currently one of his acrobatic partners.
Since then, he has been performing in various festivals, theaters, operas, circuses and dance shows amongst others.
His combined lack of discipline, natural ability to avoid hard work, love for comedy series, excessive sun bathing and awesome hair style, which have created the performer he is today.
