Swinging Trapeze Workshops with Rachel Walker Apr 20-22
Posted March 26, 2012
Rachel Walker returns to Circus Warehouse for three terrific swinging trapeze workshops. Each workshop is two hours long and participants will explore the sensation of moving through the air and releasing in different positions. Workshops are taught in the Kooza style and will break down the basics of swinging trapeze. Advanced students will embark on high-level movements and putting together sequences!

Be prepared to work hard and have a great time.

Students should wear clothes that cover their whole legs, arms, and feet. Gaiters (leather ankle protectors) are highly recommended but not required.

Rachel is also available to teach private lessons in the following disciplines:
  • Swinging trapeze
  • Cloud swing
  • Duo trapeze
  • Dance trapeze
  • Aerial hoop
  • Flexibility
