Crossed Wires: Twisty, Wrappy, Spirally Vocabulary for Dance Trapeze

$175.00

The dance trapeze is a malleable and forgiving partner, allowing all sorts of shapes and pathways that beget infinite spirals and twists. Learn some of April’s signature and most-unique vocabulary, a dialect of dance trapeze that merges vertical skills borrowed from fabric with the precision and power of static trapeze. We will use a “choose your adventure” format to understand transitions in a way that emphasizes the underlying theory behind common setups. This is my most-requested instruction and I’ll be sure to include some “personal treasures” in the class.

Student Prerequisites:

Hammock/sling practitioners will quickly see commonalities in the way April likes to manipulate the dance trapeze. Students should have been working on dance trapeze for at least two years of focused study, and be able to comfortably invert in the ropes many times, should have an easy forward fold (hands to floor), straddle flexibility of 135 degrees. Strong spatial orientation or familiarity with wrap / knot / fabric theory a plus.

Apparatus:
Dance Trapeze

Instructor:
April Skelton

April Skelton is an aerialist, educator, and dance trapeze evangelist based in Colorado. She is the Education Director at Frequent Flyers Aerial Dance in Boulder. April has been working in aerial arts since 2005, after beginning her own training at Canopy Studio in Athens, Ga., under the direction of Susan Murphy. Out of that community of Southern artists, April adopted and helped develop the particular dialect of dance trapeze she speaks most fluently: a merging of vertical skills borrowed from aerial fabric and sling with the dynamic precision of static trapeze. She is honored to teach and perform at the inaugural Seattle Aerial Dance Festival.
