Come hang out with us! This workshop is all about different ways to hang on an apparatus. We will cover two-arm hangs, one-arm hangs, armpit hangs, elbow hangs, front balance/hip hang, back balance/back hang, knee hangs, single knee hangs, ankle hangs, toe hangs, and heel hangs. All students will have the opportunity to practice their hangs on a stationary bar, a trapeze, and a lyra. Students of all levels are welcome, including beginners!
Learn about the mechanics of each hang, how to do it safely, and — for the harder hangs — how to train the strength to get there. Most hangs are not apparatus-specific, so join us no matter what you train on, whether it’s trapeze, lyra, wheel, or something else!
Carly teaches German wheel and static trapeze. She is a three-time U.S. Open Women’s All-Around Champion in wheel gymnastics and a certified coach through the USA Wheel Gymnastics Federation. She has performed both solo and duo wheel acts at events and venues such as the Wheel Gymnastics World Championships, the Barrymore Theatre, Overture Center’s Capitol Theater, Madison’s Orpheum Theater, and Chicago’s Daley Plaza. Coming to static trapeze from a background in flying trapeze and wheel, Carly loves practicing and teaching dynamic movements like beats, circles, rolls, and drops.
Luke has performed and taught circus arts all around the world, including juggling, ball spinning, German wheel, and Cyr wheel. He is a certified wheel coach through the USA Wheel Gymnastics Federation. Luke regularly teaches German wheel and Cyr wheel at the MCS.
