Hip Hops Forever

With Cody Hayman

A fount of joy for those who have mastered them, an endless source of frustration for those still grappling them: hip hops (or backsteps/breaks) are at the nexus of nearly every wrap you can entangle yourself in. This workshop will deconstruct and demystify this move in order to explore its many entries and applications.

About The Coach

Cody Hayman found the circus in Olympia, WA in 2009, where he was a founding member of Airbound Underground and an instructor at SANCA. Though he started as a rope artist, Cody has picked up many other circus disciplines in the years since, including trapeze, hair hanging, and clowning. He has always had a passion for community-based circus performance, producing countless shows in Olympia and New Orleans, as well as performing and teaching all over the country for events like Sh’Bang, Atlanta Aerial Arts Festival, InFringe Fest New Orleans, and others.

Cody’s approach to teaching mirrors his approach to performing: always with a sense of curiosity, enthusiasm, and a dash of flamboyance.
