Weekend Immersions

Weekend Immersion: Cloud Swing

Move up, down, and all around this double-point apparatus that’s a beautiful marriage between trapeze, sling, and aerial rope. Bring your aerial curiosity and we'll dive into skills transferred from other static apparatus, and some that are unique to the cloud swing. Explore skills and sequencing including mounts, dismounts, climbs, beats, rolls, and inversions. Although mostly static, we’ll explore some light movement through swaying and twisting. You'll leave knowing the cloud swing as so much more that just a simple rope loop.

Prerequisites: This workshop is designed for those with a current aerial practice at an intermediate level. Students should be comfortable inverting cleanly multiple times in the air (not kicking off the ground), be able to hold a front balance hands-free, and be able to move freely around an apparatus with one arm. Please wear clothing that covers the backs of your knees and bring layers.

Early Bird Registration: Enroll at least three weeks before the start date and automatically get $25 off.
