  • Sling Skills Level 1
    Aerial sling is kind of the gate-way apparatus to aerial dance. It is a low hanging hammock type set-up that is comfortable, safe and doesn't require the same amount of strength or coordination that aerial silks does. In this class we will explore connections to the floor traveling upwards and building up that core and arm strength needed for the other apparatuses. The sling is a great combination of the trapeze and fabric- so two times the fun!
  • Sling Skills Level 2
    To register for Sling Level 2 students should feel comfortable inverting in the air, can create a crossback, and have the abiltity to do one pullup as well as tuck knees above navel. In Sling 2 we'll work through sequences that may contain many shapeortunities, dynamic pathways, belays, spinning, and potential to make you think hard :)
  • Dance Trapeze Skills Level 1
    Explore the world of the horizontal apparatus with us in this fun class! Don't think of the flying trapeze where you release the bar to be caught mid-air. Dance trapeze stays close to the ground and is rigged from a single point for spinning. With the metal bar for support it is a great beginner apparatus. The ropes offer a variety of transitions and beautiful poses. The trapeze becomes a dance partner as you learn to flip and fly.
