Rope Fundamentals and Theory with Danny EAUX August 20 & 21, 2016
2-day Corde Lisse Workshop with special guest Instructor Danny Eaux. Note both classes may be taken individually. Please
We will explore together how training fundamental body positions translates to Rope theory and practice. The first part of class after the warm up will be spent working on holding and perfecting the hollow body position. The class will then shift focus to that body position on the Rope as it translates to climbing and prepping for poses or transitions. This course will focus on technique from start to finish. We will work through the class beginning with climbs, inverting technique, front and back balances, then exploring the wheel-down (helicopters) and it’s variations. Students will be encouraged to explore their own styles while working through these skills. Students can expect to leave with the knowledge to continue to train safely and explore movement on the Corde Lisse using these foundational skills.
