Dance Trapeze Bar Manipulation:
One of the joys of single point trapeze is the freedom the bar has to move. This workshop will unveil sneaky tricks and transitions that utilize this freedom to manipulate the bar’s position. This means, instead of moving around the bar, you’ll discover creative and visually enchanting ways to toss and spin the trapeze around you. Some skills taught in this workshop require at least a small spin for full effect.
Active Flexibility for Splits & Straddles:
Want to revamp your flexibility routine? This workshop will provide innovative drills for strengthening and lengthening the legs for better active control of splits and straddles. Includes a well-rounded routine that addresses common limitations that often lead to flexibility plateaus. Students will leave the workshop feeling strong and ready to show off their best split!
