Swinging on a Cloud with Violet Defiant 9/7/18

Friday, September 7th
6:45pm- 8:45pm
$60 per student


Static cloud is a rope or silk hung in a loop, with the rigging points set much wider than that of the hammock/sling. The cloud swing combines skills from static trapeze and hammock, also inviting you to explore movements unique to this apparatus, like side-to-side swinging and spinning around the ropes. Because of the way clouds move, this is an intermediate level workshop. Please wear long, thick leggings, a long sleeved shirt that tucks in, and socks or trapeze boots to protect your skin.

PREREQ: Please wear long, thick leggings, a long sleeved shirt that tucks in, and socks or trapeze boots to protect your skin.

  • Intermediate level clearance in any aerial apparatus
  • Ability to invert unassisted from a seat
  • 3 consecutive pull ups
  • Straight arm and bent arm hold for 20 second
