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.

We will work towards creating a coherent, thinking body by building awareness using techniques and skills collected through research and experience. We will integrate transitions and “tricks” into sequences to become better technicians and performing artists, being mindful of the question, “what are we choosing/drawing on and why?” Level: Intermediate, silks and rope must be able to do 5 pull-ups and execute a clean hip key and invert in air again and again.

Introduction to single point trapeze:  Lisa Kanizay

Prerequisites:  Have completed at least two levels of session of silks, trapeze, rope or hoop.

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.

Date:  Sunday, September 13
Time:  3-4:30 p.m.

Price:  $50



Lisa Kanizay Bio

I grew up in the Denver area, but I was not introduced to aerial until moving to
Athens, GA. In Georgia, a friend brought me to Canopy Studio, where I found my
love of aerial arts on single point trapeze. A couple years after taking single point, I
began taking silks classes as well. I studied at Canopy Studio for six years.  Recently I moved to St. Louis, discovered Bumbershoot, and have since continued to study silks, explore circus trapeze, and expand my aerial vocabulary. The quality I love most about single point is the intriguing way it behaves like a mix between circus bar and silks.
