An evening of movement that will inspire!
New Adult Intro Class
Intro to Silks and Trapeze
Mondays 5:30-6:45pm starting Feb 4th, 2019
Learn the foundations of two apparatuses for the price of one. This combo class is “new to aerial” students and will familiarize you with how to climb, put on a foot knot, wrap yourself in the silks AND how to mount and stand on a trapeze, hang from your knees, and hit a power pose perfect for a photo opportunity.
Intro to silks and trapeze will set you up for success in the other beginner classes Birds Eye View has to offer. No experience required, just a willing attitude.
New Youth Class!
In this mixed age class (8-17) students will learn tightwire, walking globe, various juggling sequences, object balancing and a whole lot of clowning around! Some sessions, students will also have the opportunity to work on stilt walking too! Students wishing to work aerial should join the Youth or Teen circus classes.
Tuesdays 5:30-6:30pm starting March 5th
