=> TEACHER <=
Fons Bennink has been teaching Partner Acrobatics for more than 30 years. He is mostly to be found teaching in Nijmegen (NL), but is also very popular abroad: Germany, Belgium, Scotland and many other countries. In Germany, sometimes he is even referred to as an «Alte Hase» (old man in the trade).
Fons started with acrobatics at the age of 36 in Nijmegen.
After attending different courses and classes, he continued on a five years of training at the Como Brother's in Amsterdam. Later on he moved for a further development to the Osmanis in Amsterdam. He finds himself a «technique freak» and finds acrobatics a technical discipline (not a stunt work).
His starting point is: «By thorough training, you learn to master the techniques of acrobatics and to get a feeling for the movements of the partner.» His specialty is tempo exercises; following movements of the partner.
=> LEVEL <=
