Location: Trapezium

Swing, bounce and fly in a weekend of aerial acrobatics custom made for trapezists ready to take their skills higher and bigger. Swinging trapeze will be the main focus of the workshop, and students will move from the important basics of swinging technique to basic "tricks" and more complex sequencing. To supplement these skills we'll cross train with bungee acrobatics and harness based flight work for aerial awareness, core strength and just plain fun! This is a small workshop limited to 8 people to ensure lots of time in the air. Students must have a regular and current trapeze practice (and good hand callouses!). Students must be able to do 3 pull ups, do long hang beats and ankle hang beats, and be able to hold a one knee hang and a front balance (without hands).

About the coaches: Elsie & Serenity were featured as duo swinging trapezists on Cirque du Soleil's "Saltimbanco" and have been coaching aerialists all over the world for nearly 30 years.
