See Your C-Shape

Want to improve your waist rolls OR your back balance OR your static switches on straps?

Students will move through a series of mobility exercises, proprioceptive and active flexibility drills that isolate and strengthen potential weak points in your C. Students will start on the floor, move to sling, and then finish on straps and rope for waist rolls, back balances, and switch prep!

Students must be level 2a or higher to take this workshop.

Aerial Straps Level 1 (Straps Are Fun!)

Aerial Straps Level 1 (Straps Are Fun!)

Learn fundamental techniques for safe and effective training of aerial straps that will improve your power and control across all apparatuses. Straps are fun. Students warm up using a set of exercises designed to pre-habilitate and strengthen the shoulders, then cover fundamental static positions on straps (meathook, inverted straddle, nutcracker, croc, support, flag, and side balance). Straps are fun. The end of the workshop will focus on 2 and 1-arm spinning using the dynamic technique of flares to invert to different positions. I swear straps are fun.
This workshop will be beneficial for aerial artists who want to improve their spinning technique, meathooks/reverse-meathooks, roll-ups, and other skills on any apparatus. No straps experience required.
