Dynamic Rope & Fabric
(also applicable for sling and trapeze)
Sunday, August 19th | 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM
Dynamic movement has become an integral part of Rope and Fabric in the last 10 years. Harnessing momentum in the air opens up a whole new range of skills, transitions and ways of moving through the air. When we become proficient in these techniques and pathways, we increase our power and strength in the air whilst decreasing the amount of effort required.
In this class we will cover the techniques required to maximize your power and grace in the air; engagement, timing, pathway and release. This workshop will be beneficial to any student wishing to learn or improve dynamic movement on any apparatus.
Pre-Requisites: Aerial Fit Level 3 Silks OR must be able to climb 20ft, cleanly invert and windmill hip key in the air
