He started at Circus Warehouse’s intensive program, and has studied under different coaches in SF, Montreal, and Mexico. His circus teaching career began in San Francisco, and since then he has taught nationally and internationally. He draws from his academic background in neuroscience and psychology to augment his work as an instructor.

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.
