Workshop meets Friday 6:30-8:30pm and Saturday 4:30-6:30pm

Join rope artist Jenny Atomik for this two-day Master Class aimed at creating connection between the ground and the air. Inspired by aerial dance, tumbling, and aerial acrobatics, this workshop will explore mounts, ascents, and spins that integrate ground choreography to the air in connection with the rope.

Depending on participant interest, we will also spend some time working on dynamic skills such as twists and the pirouette.

**If you are unable to attend both days but would like to attend only Friday or Saturday, email info@eshcircusarts.com for single day registration at a cost of $75/day.**

Pre-requisites: Participants should be confident with the fundamentals of beat technique, including straddle switches, and should be capable of executing at least a few pull-ups on the rope.

The training is aimed at folks who want to learn to pull lines or improve their line pulling for partner acrobatic skills. Level 1 is open to all, and will include training in pulling lines for a variety of skills performed with a standing base including mounts, dismounts, and variations for hand-to-hand, hand-to-foot, and two-highs. We'll discuss considerations for pulling lines if you're on the smaller side, and also look at what makes for good line pulling technique (as opposed to poor technique that hinders skills).

The goal of this workshop is to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to safely pull lines for a range of partner balances. In order to be permitted to pull lines at Esh, participants must demonstrate competence with the material. If a participant has not mastered the material by the end of the workshop, the instructor will discuss appropriate follow-up training.

This Level 1 training is a pre-requisite for Level 2 line pulling training, which will cover lines technique for more complex, dynamic skills for partner and group acrobatics.

Pre-requisites: Participants must be comfortable either basing or flying a two-high (standing on shoulders), and should be familiar with the basic concepts of standing hand-to-hand and hand-to-foot. Participants do not need to be able perform standing hand-to-hand or hand-to-foot skills in order to attend this training.

"I visited the new Esh location for my first trapeze/hoop class last night, and it is amazing. ...In an hour and a half I learned a knee hang, a sit, and three tricks. If you've been thinking about trying an aerials class I highly recommend Esh. The instruction and customer service are top-notch!"
