Acrobalance is an acrobatic art that combines elements of adagio and hand balancing.

Adagio consists of partner lifts, usually performed by a man and a woman, where the male lifts his female partner in many different poses and positions. Many forms of adagio also incorporate throws and tosses; the male usually throws the female into somersaults, layouts, and other acrobatic manoeuvres.

Hand balancing is the performance of acrobatic body shape changing movements, or stationary poses, or both, while balanced on and supported entirely by one’s hands or arms. It is performed by acro dancers, circus performers, gymnasts, and sports acrobats.
