WORKSHOP: Coming Full Circle

Do you dream of whirling around your apparatus? Then this workshop is for you! We’ll cover circles of all kinds, including single- and double-leg Russian rolls, horse circles, Mill circles, back hip circles, forward hip circles, single knee circles, double knee circles, elbow circles, and back circles. Suitable for circus artists of all levels, including beginners.

Learn the physics and mechanics of each circle, how to train it safely, how to spot it, and how to work up to it. All students will have the opportunity to practice their circles on a stationary bar, a trapeze, and a lyra. Most circles are not apparatus-specific, so join us no matter what you train on, whether it’s trapeze, lyra, wheel, or something else!

WORKSHOP: Hanging Out

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!
