Aerial dance classes focus on using the floor to change the behavior of the apparatus and using the apparatus to change how you interact with the floor. Essentially, they will teach you how to view the floor as part of the apparatus, not just something to be used and abandoned.

Single Point Trapeze
This class is not being offered this session.
In this class, Tamara will teach you how to be friends with the floor and view it as part of the apparatus, not just something to be used and abandoned.
You will delve into the single point circle and techniques to finding it and finessing the apparatus within that momentum. You will learn to mount the apparatus, negotiate transitions, and dismount while flying and spinning, and learn how to maintain safety in that environment. There will also be some group and partner work on the floor as you learn to enter the space and interact with a suspended dancer safely and with intent and the possibility of joining a partner in short improvisational dances above the floor may arise.
This is an exhilarating workout and spinning is inherent in this work, but does not need to be dizzying so don’t let that stop you from joining us.
Prerequisite: This class is an Intermediate Foundation class. You must meet the Beginning Sequences graduation requirements.
