Wall Running / Vertical Dance

Wall Running Technique (Skilled)

/ with Lindsey Butcher (2017)

Strictly for aerialists with prior single point sit harness experience!

After revising correct use of the rigging we’ll begin with a short daily intro on specific core strengthening and preparation for harness and move through basic orientation and vocabulary building towards learning jumps, somersaults, choreography and creative play on the wall.

Pre requisites: You must have previously attended an introductory level course or have some single point harness experience on the wall.

Please wear multiple snug layers around your hips & waist for your comfort, long sleeved shirts are also handy for some moves. If you have a preferred climbing harness and any kit (gri gris, rigs, carabiners etc), please bring them with you.


Wall Running Rep (Skilled/Advanced)

/ with Lindsey Butcher (2017)

Strictly for aerialists with prior single point sit harness experience!

Using sit harnesses, we’ll begin by working through rigging and harness vocabulary with each of you before moving into exploring set choreographic sequences on the wall. A great way to learn new vocabulary, challenge your spatial orientation and practise building choreography and performing longer phrases.

Please wear multiple snug layers around your hips & waist for your comfort. If you have a preferred climbing harness & any kit (gri gris, rigs, carabiners etc), please bring them with you.


Vertical Dance/Wall Running Technique

/ with Kathyrn Cooley (2017)

This class is for anyone and everyone who wants to try out or improve their skills on the wall. Within the class you will learn how to operate all the equipment used in vertical dance training safely. You will also get to learn positions on the wall, jumps from the wall (including somersaults and cartwheels) and of course some wall running. By the end of the week we will have a small routine put together that can be performed with the others within the class time.

What to bring: Water and some crystallised ginger!

Clothing: bring as many layers as possible. The harness hurts after a while so padding especially around your thighs, hips, and kidney area is essential.



Skilled & Advanced Wall Doubles

/ with Lee Clayden (2017)

Previous wall running experience required, but not doubles wall running. No partner required. The class will explore working with a partner beside you on the wall. How can you interact with your partner, how can you manipulate their rope? Exploring shapes, running and rotations, both in sync and out of sync.


Mixed Harness Apparatus

/ with Lee Clayden (2017)

Working in solos, pairs and groups, this class forms an introduction to the characteristics of working on a variety of rigging systems, in different configurations and spatial relationships and using guided improvisations to explore each new territory. We’ll usually begin each class with floor work leading into aerial exploration. A really fun class which you can take at your own pace and even better, you don’t have to hang on to anything!
