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.

~ Fundamentals of Hand Balancing ~
Give your feet a break! Handstands lie at the heart of most acrobatic disciplines, and hand balancing is a fun and challenging component of many movement practices. These postures require patience, strength, coordination, and grace. This workshop will introduce fundamental concepts of hand balancing and then apply them to wherever you are in your practice with specifically tailored instruction for each student. At the end we will focus on specific massage and stretching techniques to ensure wrist and shoulder health as we demand more and more from these structures.
