Guest Workshop: Above the Bar with Melissa Coffey

Above The Bar
Trapeze with Melissa Coffey

A 90 minute exploration of twisted ropes from silk and trapeze vocabulary. This workshop focuses on getting fluent in the ropes while finding authentic vocabulary and creating dynamic sequences.

Lessons are broken down into achievable segments for multiple levels, students should be able to do a clean pullover, and higher level students should be comfortable with inversions and threading legs in the ropes/ on silks. Students will be shown new tricks and transitions, but also be challenged and shown ways to find new moves, and make existing moves look their own.

All students should wear full length leggings and cover the tops of their feet with stirrups/ trapeze boots/ leg warmers.

$40 for one workshop
$70 for two workshops
$90 for three workshops
