Intro to Static Cloud Swing

With Chelsea Barrett

Cloud swing is a double-point apparatus that offers a beautiful fusion between trapeze, sling, and aerial rope. In this workshop, students will learn to navigate the apparatus through individual skills and sequencing, including mounts, dismounts, beats, rolls and drops. Although mostly static, we will explore some light movement through swaying and twisting. Students will discover many transferable skills from other static apparatus.
