For Intermediate, participants must be comfortable with knee beats, long hang beats, hip circles, ankle hang, and pulling over to a hip hang independently on a high trapeze. For Advanced Beginning, students must be familiar with beats, hip circles, and ankle hang.
Intermediate Dynamic Trapeze is for aerialists with some prior trapeze experience who are already familiar with dynamic work. We will build on existing dynamic skills to develop smoother and more powerful beats, circles, drops, twists, and sequences.
Advanced Beginning Dynamic Trapeze is for people who have completed at least one Beginning Dynamic Trapeze series and are familiar with the apparatus and the foundational skills of dynamic movement, including basic beats, hip circles, and ankle hang. Students must have a foundation of strength.
I strongly recommend that everyone participating in class is fully vaccinated AND boosted for COVID-19. You must sign and agree to the terms in the MCS COVID-19 waiver to participate in class.
About the Instructor
Carly teaches both German wheel and static trapeze at MCS. She received her aerial teacher training from Carrie Heller of the Circus Arts Institute in Atlanta, Georgia and the Introduction to Teaching Aerials program through Nimble Arts. Since then, she has furthered her personal aerial training with classes in San Francisco, London, Chicago, Québec City, Montréal, and Brattleboro, VT. 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. With beginners, Carly emphasizes strength and fundamentals, using fun teaching drills and conditioning exercises in her classes to help her students gain confidence and make tangible progress over time.
