With 5 1/2 hours of training each day for 2 jam-packed days, we will take full advantage of NECCA’s cutting-edge Trapezium facility — including 40-foot ceilings and a fantastic foam pit for a rope filled adventure. This workshop will focus on harnessing energy and momentum in order to work with and defy gravity. We’ll focus on dynamic transitions and releases, and explore floor and low rope skills for a well-rounded experience.

Students should have a current & regular rope practice, and be comfortable doing with beats, and multiple inversions cleanly through short and long arm hangs, and can do two pull ups on the rope.
