Session 3: Icarian Games

These are priced so that the price per class is less when you pay for the whole workshop. This is to encourage people to come to the whole thing. Workshops are better when we have a number of people who go to all the classes. It is okay to purchase individual classes as well. It is also cheaper to pay in advance rather than paying at the door. It is very helpful for us if you pay in advance electronically because when we know who is coming and we can design a better workshop. You can pay at the door too if that is your only option.

Pay Debbie. You can pay Paypal, Venmo, or Facebook Pay. Once you have paid please send a facebook PM to Debbie explaining how you have paid. If you are using PayPal, please change “Goods and services” to “friends and family” otherwise it will charge us. Then you should be set to “Friends and Family” by default for the future. You can find Debbie with her email [email protected] If Venmo find her with her phone number 5415217868.

You can look at our website if you want to get to know us better. We have dozens of examples of the type of acro we teach.

Teacher Bios

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 five years, teaching together for four years, and have been a couple for three years. They have taught all over the world, from Divine Play to South America to the Israeli Acro Convention.

Debbie Collis 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 perfect 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.
