Tangled: Mechanics and Exploration of Aerial Fabric Wraps
Limited Capacity full

This workshop is intended for intermediate - advanced students who want to explore possibilities on aerial fabrics beyond memorizing wraps and tricks. The structure is intended to aid in a deeper comprehension of what makes a wrap work, how skills connect together, and give tools for extricating oneself from novel wraps. Students will gain further understanding of the safety and mechanics needed to create novel skills and sequences that accentuate their individual strengths .

Intermediate Sequencing for Static Trapeze
Limited Capacity filling up

Often, when we learn aerial arts, we work on one skill at a time. Once you have a pretty good "toolbox" of skills, though, it's important to learn how to string them together in ways that are efficient, safe, and interesting to watch. In this workshop, students will learn a fun and engaging sequence in three or more parts and will then put it all together into one "routine". This will allow them to work on fluidity of movement, transitions between the various levels of the trapeze (under, on, and above the bar), and endurance. And students may even learn some new skills along the way!

Understanding Momentum on Rope for Circus Educators
Limited Capacity full

This workshop will examine how to safely teach momentum using physics and biomechanics as our guide. Although this is a rope-based workshop, the concepts can also be applied to other aerial apparatuses, including fabric and static/dance trapeze. The workshop will include engagement and alignment cues as well as safe progressions for learning.
