How to Float: C-shaping Beyond Roll-ups

With Cody Hayman

About This Workshop

Take c-shaping beyond roll-ups and explore how to use it with balances, beats, wraps, and releases. We’ll apply tempo to our c-shaping to blend it with dynamic twists, use it to freeze in unexpected balances, and apply it to drops and wraps to create movement patterns that are constantly spiraling, tilting, and twisting.


June 9, 2:00 – 3:30 pm


$50 | $40 if in Rope Meeting

This workshop is for rope artists already familiar with roll-ups and beats. Participants must be comfortable with scissor beats, plank beats, a back balance, a hip key roll-up, and at least one other type of roll-up.

About The Coach

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.
