Aerial Rope

With Cody Hayman

Learn to float! Develop beats that hang in the air, shapes that stay suspended unexpectedly, and a movement quality that will glide, twirl, furl, and unfurl as if you’re moving underwater or floating in space. We’ll look at how to build more power in your dynamic movements, apply c-shaping concepts to moves beyond standard roll-ups (don’t worry, we’ll do those too), and learn how to practice lightness and ease in how you move through the air.


Friday | 6:00 – 9:00 pm
Saturday | 1:00 – 4:00 pm & 5:00 – 7:00 pm
Sunday | 11:30 am – 2:30 pm

About The Coach

About the Instructor: Cody Hayman found the circus in Olympia, WA in 2009, where he was a founding member of Airbound Underground and an instructor at SANCA. Though he started as a rope artist, Cody has picked up many other circus disciplines in the years since, including trapeze, hair hanging, and clowning. He has always had a passion for community-based circus performance, producing countless shows in Olympia and New Orleans, as well as performing and teaching all over the country for events like Sh’Bang, Atlanta Aerial Arts Festival, InFringe Fest New Orleans, and others.

Cody’s approach to teaching mirrors his approach to performing: always with a sense of curiosity, enthusiasm, and a dash of flamboyance.
