Pop Up SLAM at McCarren Park
Fresh from their appearance at London 2012, the Cultural Olympiad of the Summer Games where from dawn to dusk they emblazoned the city's landscape, the STREB Extreme Action Company will bring the energy, daring and exuberance of its Williamsburg home, the STREB LAB FOR ACTION MECHANICS (SLAM) to McCarren Park.
Throughout August, the company will offer a series of free classes in Elizabeth Streb's signature POPACTION technique for children and adults.
Central to POPACTION and SLAM is creative investigation where all are inspired and challenged to go further than they imagined.
No Experience Necessary.
KID ACTION August 7 - 30
Age range: 7-10yrs
Age range: 8-12yrs
Adult POPACTION August 7 - 30
Adult Flip & Tuck August 7 - 30
KID ACTION reflects the high energy, fast-paced movement that kids experience all around them everyday. Kid Action, based on STREB's work, is of particular interest to young people who are continually testing the limits of their physical universe. Based on the principles of POPACTION, young action engineers will be intrigued by the vigorous exploration of impact, velocity and the defiance of gravity through a combination of physical conditioning, daredevil stunts, acrobatics and aerial arts.
POPACTION: Experience the technique that is the foundation of the STREB Extreme Action Company's creative process. POPACTION intertwines dance, athletics, boxing, rodeo, the circus, and Hollywood stuntwork into a bristling muscle-and-motion vocabulary.
Flip & Tuck: Flip and Tuck offers conditioning and training for both advanced tumblers and those new to acrobatics in a personalized and supportive atmosphere. It's a fun and challenging way to increase overall flexibility, core strength, and body alignment—and grow your acrobatic skill set in the process!
Space Limited. Drop-ins welcome if space is available.
