with Heather BoothSign Up Now!
Dance trapeze has so many possibilities! Hang it high but within your reach and you have so much movement potential under the bar; here you can combine traditional circus moves with a contemporary style. Hang it hip height and your movement on and off the bar becomes completely different. And of course, we can’t forget the lines of the trapeze, a place for constant rediscovery of movement. Join us for this workshop and work with movement below, on, and above trapeze bars set at different heights.
Students with prior aerial experience will benefit more from the workshop.
