Trapeze

Improver Trapeze

/ with Suzon Gheur (2020)

This class is for those who train dance or static trapeze occasionally or on a regular basis, who would like to explore some different ways of moving and creating on the dance trapeze. This class will focus on helping build your trapeze vocabulary around the bar and in the ropes, encouraging you to find your own movement style on the apparatus. We will work on a combination of skill specific technique and creative exploration. Some days we may also try out some spinning (don’t worry its optional if you don’t tolerate spinning well).

Skilled Aerial Dance Trapeze  

/ with Aimée Hancock (2020)

We’re going to work fixed, spinning, swinging, and orbiting on the dance trapeze. This class aims to teach a variety of movements in the ropes, around the bar, and in the space between the air and ground that can be connected to form your own sequences. Students must be comfortable inverting in the ropes, hold a back balance, ankle hang, and execute pullovers with good form. Long sleeves and full leg coverage is recommended.

In order to take this class, please supply a video of a sequence including these things. 

Advanced Aerial Dance Trapeze

/ with Aimée Hancock (2020)

We’re going to use every inch of the trapeze ropes by spinning, rolling, stretching, balancing, and twirling. We will also work with different types of tempos and beats, finding new and exciting ways to find air time from bar to bar, ropes to bar, and bar to ropes – twisting, popping, and soaring. This class is action packed- students must be comfortable with many straight arm inversions, manage a minimum of 3 pull ups, solid ankle and knee hangs as well as holding front and back balances with ease. Long sleeves and full leg coverage is recommended.

 In order to take this class, please supply a video of a sequence including these things. 

    Creative Dance Trapeze  

    / with Aimée Hancock (2020)

    This class will explore the infinite possibilities of inspiration for movement. For those who wish to develop new forms of expression, a living language of movement and theatrical choreographythis class intends to invigorate, stretch your imagination, and inspire. Participants should have experience on the dance trapeze and be comfortable working through extended sequences.

    “…imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”
