*Big Movement 2 requires prior completion of Big Movement 1 OR sufficient training with other schools in running circles, track and taps, and sweeps, and permission of instructor. Drop-in classes are not permitted for Big Movement 2.
During each silks session, a special topics class will be offered that covers skills above and beyond learning new tricks. Topics will include things like sequencing, specific skill immersions, conditioning, musicality, choreography, and more.
Open Practice with Guided Skills Review: Students Beginner 2 and up are welcome to attend. Students have the option of choosing skills to review on their own, or follow the guided practice that will focus on a fundamental skill and review the fundamental, precision details of the fundamental, and progressions that develop from it. Students are expected to work at their level and only on material they have already been taught in prior classes.
Big Movement 2: Focusing on further development large movement patterns, this class teaches running circle and sweeping patterns, climbing and performing skills on spinning or circling fabrics, and partner work on moving fabrics. Big movement is primarily low to the ground and wickedly fun. Don’t miss your chance to leap, spin, glide and tarzan-swing into a giant crash mat all while developing your upper body, grip, and core strength! Prerequisite: Completion of Big Movement 1 or training in other classes (cycropia entry class, low-flying trapeze, etc) to proficiency with basic running circles, sweeps, and track and taps. Because of the progressive nature of this class, no drop-in classes are allowed.
Flexibility for the Not-So-Bendy: While aerial arts don’t require lots of flexibility in order to be an amazing performer, it sure helps! If you aren’t naturally bendy, increasing your range of motion can be a challenge! Focusing on PNF stretching, nerve flossing and release, and active flexibility, we will work to increase range of motion with a reduced risk of injury from deep passive stretching. Students will be able to continue stretching techniques at home for the duration of their aerial practice!
