"Spring Fling" Student Showcase: May 8-9-10, 2015!

This looks fun, BUT...

“Am I strong enough?”

“What if I’m
scared of heights?”

“Is it expensive?”

“How do I get started?”

All your questions
answered in the
Bumbershoot
Beginner’s Guide!

At Bumbershoot Aerial Arts, we put the "play" back into life. With quality instruction and a nurturing environment, we empower you to get creative and have fun! When you come to class, we give you a trapeze and teach you that your options are limitless. Through climbing and swinging and dancing in the air, we expand perspectives and inspire new confidence.

We love altering people’s self image by showing them what they are capable of. As you climb to the top of a 30 foot rope, your every day challenges are put back in perspective. Bumbershoot Aerial Arts enriches peoples' lives by helping them find their inner monkey.

Have you gotten very good at taking class, collected a lot of vocabulary, technique and skill, and are looking for a way to bridge the divide between class and performing?

In this workshop we will work together to build sequences using our experience to transfer skills from class to stage. Working with ideas of hanging, balancing, and falling, we will make connections between form and function. We will work to stay open and alert, observing habits and tensions to make room to grow as a mover and thinker.

There will be 8 classes and 2 practice labs included in the series. In the lab practices (on Sunday, May 24 & Sunday, June 7) the Hoop and Rope students will practice together. An informal showing of the full group piece will be held on June 19th.

Prerequisite: Completion of Rope 1.

Introduction to Single Point Trapeze with Lisa Kanizay
Sun 5/17 2:00 pm-4:00 pm
Read More

In this workshop we introduce single point trapeze. We will learn a few tricks and movements, and explore how to move between them. Language that can be translated from circus or static trapeze (such as gazelle and seahorse) and moves unique to single point (such as bow and arrow and katniss) will be explored. If time permits and students are interested, students can play with their favorite move(s) and perform in a casual show and tell. We will do a short warm up and cool down as part of the workshop.

Prerequisites: completion of either level 2 of silks or trapeze.
