The goal of this workshop is to provide participants with the skills and knowledge to safely pull lines for a range of partner balances. This Level 1 training is open to all, and will include training in pulling lines for a variety of skills performed with a standing base including mounts, dismounts, and variations for hand-to-hand, hand-to-foot, and two-highs. We'll discuss considerations for pulling lines if you're on the smaller side, and also look at what makes for good line pulling technique (as opposed to poor technique that hinders skills).
Participants must be comfortable either basing or flying a two-high (standing on shoulders), and should be familiar with the basic concepts of standing hand-to-hand and hand-to-foot. Participants do not need to be able perform standing hand-to-hand or hand-to-foot skills in order to attend this training.
This Level 1 training is a pre-requisite for Level 2 line pulling training, which will cover lines technique for more complex, dynamic skills for partner and group acrobatics.
A note for those who wish to pull lines at Esh Circus Arts: In order to be permitted to pull lines at Esh for the skills covered in this workshop, participants must demonstrate competence with the material. If a participant has not mastered the material by the end of the workshop, the instructor will discuss appropriate follow-up training.
