Sunday the 19th of February saw Solent Fitness & Aerial Arts hosting our 4th annual Youth Aerial Hoop Competition. We've been running this competition to provide some of the local young people who take aerial hoop classes with the opportunity to meet some of their peers and perform to a small audience in a friendly environment!
1st of February means one thing..... HANDSTAND FEBRUARY!!
We are going to make things interesting this year and turn it into a photo competition!
This is how it will work...:
1: Submit a handstand photo by emailing it to us, messaging it to the Facebook page or posting it on the timeline (photos can be either in class, or out and about somewhere - the more interesting the place or position the better - but MUST have been taken in 2017!)
2: We will post all of the photos we receive into a specific album on Facebook so everyone can see them!
3: All of the instructors will vote on a WEEKLY winner who will be announced and receive £5 credit to spend how they want on our Team Up!
4: At the end of February, we will then decide on an overall winner, whose picture will be our Facebook page's profile photo for March :) and they will be given the opportunity to write a blog post if they want!
Ts & Cs:
PLEASE make sure you are SAFE - warm up beforehand and don't do your handstand somewhere silly and dangerous!!
All forms of hand balancing are welcome, not just standard handstands.
You can submit as many photos as you want per week/month but you can only win the weekly competition ONCE.
Group photos of up to 4 will be accepted and if they win, will EACH receive the £5 credit.
You MUST have attended a class (group/private) with us since the start of 2017 to enter your photos.
Any questions, message us!
PS if you need help with handstands, speak to Zorena!!
