New Class! Acro Basics!

Community members,

Wednesdays are about to get a whole lot more interesting with a new class service being added called Acro Basics! This class will be taught by the incredible Joshua Hale and is designed to help guide new students looking to begin their journey into the world of Tricking and Acrobatics. Here are the details and if you’re interested in learning more about this class, read on.

Wednesday Schedule Changes Effective 12/8:

Adult Movement Circuits 7pm-7:45pm 6pm-6:45pm
Acro Basics 7pm-7:45pm
Strength 8pm-8:45pm

Important to note for those who remember the old Acro Class and how it operated, this is not a return of that class. The old Acro Class was attached as a part of our Level 2 program and focused on much more dynamic and complex flips and tricks such as front and back flips, handsprings, corkscrews, and other more advanced acrobatics. We are hopeful to bring that class back to the schedule at some point in the near future and this new beginner friendly offering is a part of that overall plan.

By contrast, Acro Basics is being added to our Adult Level 1 program to serve as a gateway for those looking for more guided and structured curriculum to both learn and reaffirm acrobatic techniques as well as conditioning drills to open the way for more dynamic acrobatic tricks for students looking to learn those. This class will be tailored more for beginners. Here is a brief list of what to expect:

  • Cartwheels
  • Handstands
  • Tricker Kicks (Crescent, Front, Side, Hook, Round, Tornado, Pop 3)
  • Transitions (Scoot, Machine Scoot, Blaster Scoot, Macaco)
  • Butterfly Kicks
  • Tricker Aerials
  • Sweeps

This class will include both on and off AirTrack learning, but students looking to join should always come prepared to use the AirTrack with appropriate attire (soft clothing, socks – grippy socks recommended, but not required, no hard objects such as zippers, rivets, buttons, stud earrings, belt buckles). However there will be a lot of exploration of creative tricking skills learned and applied in our regular movement space.

Additionally, this class will be operating in a similar hybrid age fashion like our Strength and Mobility classes and will be available to our Youth Level 2 students who wish to join.

If you have any other questions about this new class offering you can send us an email to info@rochesterparkour.com or give us a call at 585.204.7537.

Come get your acro on!

Mask Policy Updates August 2021

Dear RocPK Community,

Today it was announced by the Monroe County Health Department that our county has surpassed the threshold of “substantial transmission” of COVID-19. As a result, Monroe County is now recommending residents wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status.

Given this new information, RocPK will revert to requiring masks for all participants inside the facility for all services, regardless of vaccination status. No other changes will be reverted at this time, meaning we will not be lowering our enrollment caps, observing distancing, or restricting lounge access. This change will go into effect tomorrow, Tuesday, August 3rd.

As of today’s notices, Monroe County crossed into the “substantial transmission” category by 0.02 cases. It’s expected that this number will increase in the following two weeks, but quick action now can help ensure that we fall below this threshold as quickly as possible.

Reminders: masks must be double-layered and snug fitting. Bandanas, gaiters, vents, or otherwise loosely fitting masks are not permitted. 

While this announcement might seem like a giant step backward, putting masks back on is a really simple and easy action that has the potential to make a huge impact. After all, it’s also something our kids have been doing this whole time. We will continue to monitor this situation closely as it evolves and will update these policies as new data become available.

See you in the gym!

RocPK
