A multi-day straps extravaganza! Join us for a deep dive into technique, sequences, and tricks. Students will work on long-term skills such as switches, one-arm inversions, dynamic swinging skills, and roll-ups, including learning how to train and progress towards them effectively and safely. We’ll also have fun with some Sebastian-original straps choreography and movement quality. Come in ready to train hard, take notes, and explore another side of aerial straps.

Sebastian Rojas is a traveling coach, performer, and owner of Celeste Aerial Arts. Originally a martial artist for 12 years before joining the circus scene, Martial arts has given him an understanding of the body and awareness that easily translates to aerials. Sebastian specializes in taking advanced straps tricks and breaking them down into accessible drills and progressions that students can practice on their own to achieve their goals. He’s also taken a dive into using straps in unconventional ways to create unique sequences and movements that are both accessible and interesting. His goal was to bring straps into the forefront of the aerial community in Detroit, and he now travels all over the US to coach.
