Weekend Immersion: Cloud Swing with Megan Mallouk

July 31 – August 2, 2020

Move up, down, and all around on this double point apparatus that is a beautiful marriage between trapeze, sling, and aerial rope. Bring us your aerial curiosity and we’ll dive into skills transferred from other static apparatus and some that are unique to the cloud swing. Explore skills and sequencing, including mounts, dismounts, climbs, beats, rolls, and inversions. Although mostly static, we will explore some light movement through swaying and twisting. You’ll leave knowing the cloud swing as so much more that just a simple rope loop.
