SIGN UP ONLINE
In this workshop, students will practice moving dynamically with a sense of ease and effortlessness on the vertical rope. We’ll practice a progression of beats and exercises to generate momentum, and then explore using this momentum to maximum effect, either in flashy power moves or to wrap the rope hands-free. Time allowing, other topics may include: fake release moves, building large drops, using body shape to roll up, and some sequences of movement to take home.
Pre-reqs: 1 year of rope or tissue training, ability to do 8 pull-ups, ability to do 8 bent-arm, or 4 straight-arm straddle-ups.
Thursday April 20th ROPE PARTNERING
Limit: 10 people
SIGN UP ONLINE
Two people on a single rope demands some creativity and practice to move gracefully through the air. This workshop will give experienced aerialists some basic building blocks for rope partnering, such as 5 positions you can base from, ways of climbing and dropping together, as well as some practice working and communicating as a duo. No partner required for this workshop.
Terry Crane has been practicing vertical rope since 2001, and performing and teaching rope for over 10 years. He has taught workshops at the Fratellini Academy, FLIC Scuola in Torino, and all across the United States in various circus schools and studios. He is a respected leader in dynamic rope technique and convoluted knot work on this apparatus. A growing number of his students have gone on to be accepted at the National Circus School of Montréal, where he also graduated in 2006. He regularly performs his own fiercely unique style of rope at Teatro Zinzanni Seattle and with his circus company, Acrobatic Conundrum.
