Fliers will learn form for swings and will progress from swings to the floor all the way to swinging to shoulder stand.

Can hold hollow body for 30 seconds.

Sunday February 18th

This workshop will focus on the fundamental techniques for safe and effective training of aerial straps, though most exercises will greatly increase your power and control on other apparatus. We will warm up our shoulders and core using a set of exercises designed to pre-habilitate and strengthen the shoulders. The fundamental skills students will cover are static positions (meathook, inverted straddle, nutcracker, croc, support, flag, and side balance). The end of the workshop will focus on 2 and 1-arm spinning using the dynamic technique of flares to invert to different positions.

This workshop will be beneficial for first timers and aerial artists who work on other apparatus.

Prerequisites: 2 arm inversions of any kind (straddle-up, tuck-up, pike-up) 1-arm hangs with engaged shoulder for 30 seconds, and 30 second wall handstand or 1-minute plank.
