Single Point Trapeze Classes – Intermediate & Advanced
6:30PM – 7:30PM

Single-point trapeze emphasizes connection with the ground, creating space for dance with the bar. In this class, students will examine spins and swings that serve as a launching pad for innovative sequencing in the air. We will also explore leaving the bar behind and moving in the ropes with confidence and intention.
Class limit 8. Minimum 2 students per class to proceed.

Aerial Rope  – Beginner & Up
:30PM – 8:30PM

This class is for intermediate and advanced trapeze students looking to build the strength and mobility for more complex drops, rolls, and sequences while emphasizing safe and creative technique and exploring the use of momentum.
Prerequisites: Students should have mastery of the following skills: windmill hipkey, single star drop, forward dive/salto, and S-wrap. Students are also required to have 2 consecutive pull ups and 3 consecutive straddle inversions with straight legs.
Class Limit 8. Minimum 2 students per class to proceed.

Open Gym – All Levels (By Appointment Only)
