What happens when you combine the graceful poses and transitions of lyra with the wraps of silks? You end up on a dance trapeze! A dance trapeze is a light, carbon-fiber bar that connects to a single point by soft, cotton ropes. Traditionally lower to the ground, this set-up allows for spins, orbits, and swings, while also providing space for tricks below and on the bar, as well as in the ropes.
In this workshop, you will use the full space provided by the trapeze to learn a short routine that combines the strength moves, graceful transitions, and momentum-based tricks for which the apparatus is known.
