Enso in Japanese means circle. We paint a circle and the imperfection of our brushstroke is our authenticity. From Zen practice, performing an Enso is about bold expression of our authenticity.
And Acro? “Acrobatic skills involve strength, dexterity, twists, flips, balances, jumps, and turns. Also we throw in some body rotations. We can do this as individuals or with partners.
This is the definition given by the National Institute of Circus Arts based out of Australia.” Practicing acrobatics is ancient in the the history of humanity.
People invoke the word “soul” often in the context of creative expression. Even the subject of spirituality doesn’t make "soul" tangible like art & creativity does. We cannot overstate the importance of art and music. We’re talking about balance. Balance in life is how we cope. A balanced accountant or building contractor or web designer needs to step away and experience literature or dance, right? some kind of romance/adventure/expression! Art and expression bring balance to one’s life.
What is a gym membership for? The body, right? And what about expression? Does a weight lifting regimen express authentic & meaningful play? Flow art is about movement. It’s expressive like dance but not necessarily dance. Acrobatic is the “acro” part but don’t worry, clowns and popcorn are not necessary here, only physical movement.
Dance and art invigorate where we didn’t know energy existed. And when it’s the body expressing itself the instrument and the self become closer to oneness. When two people coordinate in movement, they become one. Partner acrobatics brings interpersonal coordination into play.
AcroEnso is Reno’s first large scale movement arts studio with a focus on partner acrobatics, cyr wheel, and dance. The full offering includes everything from yoga and general fitness to clowning and magic.
So throw away your gym membership, Acro Enso is better! It’s better for the soul and it’s better for coordination whether it’s one soul or more than one.
We make the world a better place by making better selves.
