Acro Jam

Acro Balance, Sports Acro, Partnering Drills, Tumbling, Hand Balancing, Contortion, Pyramids, Act Creation, and more!


Safety. That's the first and most important element of our collaboration. While Acro Jam is a perfect place to come play, we would like to emphasize that it is a controlled, supervised and safe environment.


Acro Jam is paid for by the voluntary donation of its participants. Suggested contribution is $10 to $20. Acro Jam is run by Henry Wheaton and Tara Jacob. Acro Jam is intended to be an all-level event. With that said, participants should be healthy and injury-free enough to participate without endangering themselves or others. Every day at Acro Jam we have circus professionals, as well as people who have never done a day of circus in their lives. We welcome everyone to come and try class out.


Please make sure you arrive on time for warm up or you will not be allowed to participate!


We start every day with Acro Lines, which are group drills designed to warm up, condition, and teach basic acro principles. After Lines, we break up into two groups. Newer Acro Jammers can join Tara for a more-structured acro class, while experienced Jammers join Henry for more self-directed time, including safety lines or specific coaching. After 45-60 minutes, the two groups integrate and have about an hour of unstructured time. The sign-up sheet for tricks requiring safety lines is available to all. Next we all gather together and create our Improvised Acrobatic Shape, inspired by the theme of the day. Following the Improvised Acrobatic Shape, we have ten minutes of super-fun conditioning, and finish the class with 30-45 minutes of guided partner (or solo, if you prefer) stretching.


Please arrive ready to enjoy four hours of physical activity. Comfortable, close fitting clothes are recommended. For safety reasons, we take off rings and loose, dangly jewelry, such as necklaces, bracelets or earrings. It's not a bad idea to bring a snack and a bottle of water. Please make sure to tell an instructor if you have an injury or any health or personal issues of which we should be aware.


We look forward to having you join our acro community!
