STREB offers Kids Classes in PopAction, Trampoline, and Flying Trapeze for movers of all levels. Developed by Elizabeth Streb over the last 40+ years, PopAction classes help young movers acquire new skills by posing unique challenges: change your base of support in a rapid fire way, physically designate specific locations in vertical and horizontal space, learn to pop the muscles to initiate action (rather than skeletally transferring weight), train for impact, learn to fly with low-to-the-ground maneuvers that increase spatial awareness, and incorporate a timing system that is not musical but physical (“felt timing”).  STREB operates on a ‘personal best’ philosophy—the technique is approachable and adaptable for all body types, ages, and skill sets. 

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

KID POPACTION reflects the high energy, fast-paced movement that kids experience all around them everyday. Kid PopAction is based on Elizabeth Streb’s POPACTION which intertwines dance, athletics, boxing, rodeo, the circus and Hollywood stuntwork into bristling muscle-and-motion vocabulary! 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. $500/ Semester

KID TRAMPOLINE provides your kids with a place other than your furniture to bounce, flip, and twist! Available to kids from ages 5 and up, it introduces the fundamentals of trampolining with a twist of the PopAction technique. Students will build acrobatic skill, sharpen body awareness, and learn the proper and safe techniques of partnering on a trampoline. $625/ Semester

KID FLY invites kids ages five and up to come develop their Flying Trapeze skills. All participants are evaluated individually and are taught at their own pace by our trained instructors. For more experienced flyers, the España-STREB Trapeze Academy allows students to work more intensively on specific tricks to master the ones they know, and learn the ones they dream of doing! Our team of instructors can help them achieve class goals by giving them tips and techniques to improve their form and personal style. The instructors have varied backgrounds but all are focused on safety and ensuring the students have a great experience. $625/ Semester; KID FLY teams: $725/Semester

SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION PARTNERSHIPS

The magic of KidAction doesn’t only happen [at SLAM]. Through our programs, this magic has proliferated in schools across the city, country and abroad. From preschools to institutions of higher education, all kinds of students have discovered they too can fly and fall, get up and repeat. All kinds of students have been celebrated for their ideas, their work, their personal best, their contribution to the team, to a production that passes it forward and INSPIRES the next generation.

-Cassandre Joseph, STREB EXTREME ACTION Associate Artistic Director
