Students will learn progressively more difficult hammock poses & transitions structured around a short sequence of lyrical choreography. More experienced students may begin working on more advanced skills such as spins & inversions
Class Description: Aerial Cube, performed as a solo or group act, highlights the intricate shapes, angles and lines created by this spinning aerial apparatus.
