Weekend Immersion: Catch and Release on Rope & Fabric

About this Immersion

Tackling release moves on rope and fabric can be daunting. Knowing how to fall on a mat is essential. Using momentum and good body mechanics rather than force makes release movements fun. We’ll give you the tools to confidently train these skills on your own and the information you need to begin catching consistently and comfortably. We’ll have a FOAM PIT! and a pit mat to make it all a little easier, so bring your brave self and see what you can accomplish. When you need a break from release material we’ll roll through a catalogue of movements that Teo has created in collaboration with other artists and finds inspiring.
