Rope

Improver Rope Technique

/ with Matthew Horton (2019)

This class will be focused on taking several tricks on rope and then expanding your repertoire around moving in, out and through them. we will begin with the basic moves and work through a number of possibilities of movement to find the style and movement that fits your body, and maybe find something new along the way. Participants should be able to climb confidently and link 2-3 tricks in a sequence. Close fitting clothes are a must to stop burns!


Skilled Rope Technique

/ with Matthew Horton (2019)

Participants should have a substantial knowledge and vocabulary in rope, minimum of one year experience.

This class will focus on ascent, climbs and using weight and momentum in your practice. you will be given a number of climbing techniques and materials that you will develop and adapt to your style as well as a foundation in dynamic beats and the application of dynamic movements.

Participants should have good body and spacial awareness and be comfortable creating their own vocabulary on rope. The class will encompass some dynamic elements so good grip strength and cardiovascular fitness is a must.


Advanced Rope Technique

/ with Matthew Horton (2019)

Participants should have experience with techniques that impact heavily on the body, including large drops and falls. some prior knowledge of beats and swings is required.

This class will focus on dynamic rope, progressing from beats to common release tricks and fundamental exercises to lay the foundations for more advanced acrobatic release moves on rope.

Prerequisites: good grip strength and stamina will be needed, equivalent of about 6-8 mins constant work on the rope. Good spacial and body awareness in the rope and in the air and good body tension. Knowledge and ability to beat is required.

Description pending. It’ll be creative though!


Improver Rope Technique

/ with Stevie Boyd (2019)

This class will start by quickly reviewing basic climbs to further consolidate the understanding of the body in the air through weight transfer and direction of movement in the body. We will then apply this understanding to more dynamic moves and figures, and then concluding with particular attention on swings and beats.


Skilled Rope Technique

/ with Stevie Boyd (2019)

This class will concentrate on the analysis of directions in the body in swings and in rotations to apply them onto more complex dynamic figures and acrobatic movements on the rope. We will also look on some specific strength exercises directly correlated to static figures and dynamic movements in the air.

Video Requirements:
1/ sideways swings (10 reps)
2/ forward swings (10 reps)
3/ meat-hook (max 10 sec left and right)
4/ forward and back roll (on floor)
5/ cartwheel (left and right on floor)
6/ straddle (long arm from hanging 3 reps)
7/ skin-the-cat (max 5 reps)
8/ brief sequence of 30seconds
It is not necessary to be able to complete all these elements perfectly, however it is necessary to show even part execution of the elements.


Advanced Rope Technique

/ with Stevie Boyd (2019)

We will move more quickly through the analysis of directions in the body in swings and in rotations, looking at more complex release movements in the air. We will also look on some specific strength exercises directly correlated to static figures and dynamic movements in the air. This advanced lesson will also contain a part which concentrate more on the each individual’s particular skills.

Video Requirements:
1/ sideways swings (10 reps)
2/ forward swings (10 reps)
3/ one handed meat-hook (max 10 sec left and right)
4/ forward and back roll (on floor)
5/ cartwheel (left and right on floor)
6/ slow straddle (long arm from hanging 3 reps)
7/ skin-the-cat (from hanging, through pike, max 5 reps)
8/ pull- ups (long arm from hanging 3 reps, left and right)
9/ brief sequence of 1 min
It is not necessary to be able to complete all these elements perfectly, however it is necessary to show even part execution of the elements


Creative Rope

/ with Stevie Boyd (2019)

This class will look at the basic elements of theatrical expression, body language and vocabulary, rhythm, space awareness through various exercises and games that are adaptable to anyone with or without experience in creating a number. Each person will find their own to unlock their personal creative potential. First of all we will collectively work on the floor before moving onto the equipment developing the work that each person discovered in the introductory exercises further.


Multicord

/ with Saar Rombout (2019)

In this class we will research the possibilities of what you can do with a bunch of ropes hanging vertically. We will work on techniques that are inspired by vertical rope, straps, silks and handstand. Partly we will work on the vocabulary that Saar developed and we will also work on creating your own material in the ropes. To participate in this workshop you must have an intermediate to advanced level in at least one other vertical aerial technique. You do not need previous multicord experience.
