We primarily focus on L-basing, which generally involves the base being on the ground on their back and lifting the flyer with their feet. We normally shuffle up the group throughout the class so everyone gets to work with different partners, however this is NOT a requirement. Come alone or with a partner, and if you prefer to work exclusively with a partner, just let us know. There is a component of physical touch that is inherent to this class. We emphasize consent, and everything is optional! You will find yourself laughing a lot, having fun, and making new friends! Aside from being loads of fun, this class will also help you build strength, flexibility, and balance, and the skills make an excellent addition to any performers toolbox!

Come alone or with a partner, and if you prefer to work exclusively with a partner, just let us know. There is a component of physical touch that is inherent to this class. We emphasize consent, and everything is optional! You will find yourself laughing a lot, having fun, and making new friends!

Description: Prereqs: Ability to hold one's body weight fully and hold body up in a tuck position with bent arms. This class is suitable for a variety of skill levels. As these apparatuses are inherently demanding of ones upper-body, it is advised that students attending have happy, healthy wrists and shoulders (or are very capable of listening to their bodys signals and scaling back when necessary). Explore a wide variety of conditioning exercises, then skill build on one or both apparatus, with sequences growing each week. When students develop abilities on straps and rope, every other apparatus becomes easier!
