Rope Fundamentals

Aerial Rope aka Corde Lisse is a vertical apparatus that captures attention for its use of grip strength and dynamic movement. Please note that this class is not suitable for first timers. If you are traveling and would like to visit us to take this class, please reach out to info@aerialclt.com for prior approval to register. Rope Fundamentals classes are for the intermediate level aerialist looking to learn strength based skill, poses, and eventually choreography on aerial rope. In this class students will learn the building blocks of Rope, gaining comfort and strength in grip, hanging technique, and endurance. This class will focus on theory of climbs, wraps, and various poses allowing for some pretty cool sequencing!

Prerequisites include:
Student must have promoted from Silks Fundamentals, or receive prior approval (email info@aerialclt.com) before registering for this class. Students must be able to execute a stacked straddle multiple times throughout class without using a foot to assist. Student should have endurance to climb multiple times throughout class and be able to execute a clean hip key from the air.

Ages 15+ If under 18, parent/guardian waiver must be signed prior to participation. What to wear Snug fitting clothes that cover the backs of your knees and midriff. You *may* be going upside down, so make sure everything is tucked safely into place (If clothing is not appropriate, participation will not be permitted due to safety.) The equipment looks comfy, but can easily burn your skin. Men, here is some clothing help for you.
Pre-existing conditions and injuries Anyone is welcome to try classes no matter your weight, size, or ability. We want everyone who has the desire to try aerial to visit us. But we also want to be transparent—we have a responsibility for the safety and health of our students. We hang from wrists, elbows and shoulders a lot. Any pre-existing injuries or conditions can be exacerbated and lead to long-term damage because connective tissue can be fragile. If you have any pre-existing health conditions, please carefully consider whether aerial is right for you.
