Friday kicks off with a series of two workshops by the Acro Van.
Nick Milan (returning from the 2014 Aerial Expo, where he performed and taught) has been performing and teaching acrobatics for over 5 years, training first as a tandem surfer and then a performing member with the Waikiki Acrobatic Troupe. His speciality is standing acrobatics and is very well regarded around the country for his instruction in Hand to Hand, Dance Lifts, and Group Lifts.
Daniela Garza Rios is Founder and Spiritual Director of Sutra Yoga Monterrey. Graduated with a Double in ITESM Monterrey and ESC University in France.

Mateo J Daniel is a lovable, Level 2 AcroYoga rogue proudly trained in Montreal. Known for his fun, fearless approach to the practice and his refreshing, uplifting spirit, he won’t let you sell yourself short or leave the classroom without cracking a smile and breaking a sweat. He draws inspiration from his students & numerous teachers, as well as 9+ years (and counting) of study and practice in every partnered lineage he can get his hands on.
Becca Gutstadt loves to be upside down. A former gymnast & cheerleader, she fell in love with Acro when she moved from Boston to Austin in the Summer of 2013. She has a degree in psychology, a strong background in education, and she has spent the past two years teaching Pre-K at a non-profit daycare center in Austin. Becca is now excited to take her passion for teaching on the road with The Acro Van. She looks forward to helping others discover all that Acro has to offer, and explore what makes it meaningful and fun for each individual.
