Class Descriptions

Coaches Only Trapeze 4
This class is level 4 Trapeze for Bumbershoot coaches who are training at this level. Must be a Bumbershoot coach or assistant coach to take this class.
Try-It-Out Trapeze
Trapeze 1
The Static Trapeze is a stationary bar suspended in the air by a rope on each side. In this class we will use Trapezes that are close to the ground, and work on skills such as knee hang, sitting and standing on the bar, and a variety of poses and positions that are quite impressive but still doable and fun. This is a great beginner class and no experience is necessary. However, it is challenging and students should expect to take the class multiple times before being ready to take Trapeze 2. Instructors will keep continuing students challenged by offering harder variations and help mastering things they already know throughout class.
Trapeze 2
For students who have mastered the skills taught in Trapeze 1 class, met the prerequisites, and received instructor permission, come join us in Trapeze 2! Students will begin learning rope skills, combinations, and staying up in the air longer. Students can expect to learn skills such as seahorse, Montreal, front balance, straddle back balance, arabesque sequence, forward roll, and ankle hang. Students should expect to repeat this level several times since it takes a while to master these skills and 6 weeks is barely enough time to introduce them all. Coaches will keep continuing students challenged by giving harder drills and guidance with mastering the skills they already know.
