Aerial Straps Duo:
Come join us intermediate/advanced aerial strap artists and explore different uses of space on stage using aerial straps and safely employing pulley systems to enhance your acts. This workshop is designed for duos, but solo artists can also participate and get some surprising insights about the act creation process. You may even meet your next duos partner. Minimum Intermediate Level Aerials experience.
Join me, Marcelo in the swinging trapeze, it is one of most exciting aerial apparatus I’ve trained on. The strive to be one with the trapeze in its tempo makes this the most challenging and engaging acrobatic experience you’ll try. A healthy dose of courage is required to allow the artist to fully experience and express a fluid dance in the sky, floating and flying in smooth synchronized movements. This workshop will explore the basics of swing timing and tricks, and is designed for trapeze artists with intermediate/advanced levels who want to expand their knowledge of the apparatus. Minimum intermediate level Aerials Experience and 16 years of age.
