Pre-requisites: Ability to climb, invert in the air multiple times in a class, and basic knowledge of beginner drops (double star, windmill, etc). --------------------- Understanding the Knots - Silks belays and more Sun 23/09 9:30am At some point in your silks journey, the time comes to break down all those crazy knots and belays, and understand what is keeping you from plummeting to the floor. In this workshop, we delve into the basics of these knots and holds while learning some higher level tricks.

Find never ending wraps and versatile ways to spin, trickle and drop back down to the bar. Use your legs, use your ankles, use your toes as you create stunning poses of levitation and supposed flexibility. Layers and thick socks or leg warmers are recommended for some tricks. Pre-requisites: Ability to invert in ropes and hold weight upside down. Basic silks/rope wraps are helpful, but not required. --------------------- Duo Trapeze - Basing and Flying Sun 23/09 11:30am Doubles trapeze can seem quite intimidating to the novice eye, but many combinations can be achieved by people who have only basic aerial skills. In this workshop, learn the safety and fundamentals of basing and flying while discovering body awareness in the air. Begin to feel comfortable trusting others with your weight and gain confidence in your strength and overall ability. For more advanced students, learn to embrace the joys of twisting and learn how to safely complete release tricks.
