Inspiration 10/14/14 Jogo De Baloa(Partner acrobatics)

Yesterday I was introduced to the Jogo De Baloa in capoeira which means the play of ballons but Baloa here refers to throws or partner acrobatics, these seem to be used as way to develop acrobatic awareness and combative throws. I found them very enjoyable and great addition to my interest in partner acrobatics and dance lifts.

The specific sequence we learned is the Cintura Desprezada.

It was very interesting to find this to as part of the movement culture of Capoeira.

Check out the lifts and if you feel confident and have a good partner give some of them a try.
