Corde Lisse Technique - Intermediate upwards

 

Open to practitioners with clear experience in rope and fabric. Participants should be able to straddle climb, have the grip strength to hang off of the rope for a few seconds from each hand, and the ability to pull up while climbing.

This class will mix technical work based on biomechanical principles with discovery and re-invention of skilled vocabulary.  When we find ways to use the rope as a surface on which to balance the body, we can find freedom to move, create, and express.

Corde Lisse Technique - Skilled/Advanced

Open to practitioners with a high level of experience.  Participants should have solid, controlled helicopter (at least on one side), enough grip strength to hang off of the rope for a few seconds from each hand, and the strength to climb the rope by pulling up (not just straight arms) and by straddle climbs.  This class will mix technical work based on biomechanical principles with discovery and re-invention of skilled vocabulary using improvisation.

The rope is a balancing apparatus, and the use of that principal unlocks many physical understandings necessary to successfully achieve more complex skills.  

We will look at dynamic and release work, as well as rolls, falls, and tools to create personalized vocabulary.
