From playful swinging like a child, over speedy spiraling and dreamy floating to the airy access to space in flying
Trapeze dance is a form of New Dance with integrated acrobatic elements and started in the USA with Clover Catskill. Compared to the trick oriented use of the fixed trapeze technique trapeze dance uses the swinging and turning elements as base for colorful dynamics. Through a good warm-up with bodywork, Bartenieff Fundamentals, contact improvisation and Yoga you get a good and secure base to dance with the double trapezes. For beginners they hang low like children's swings and horizontal bars they can be higher. Everyone can experiment in his or her own speed. With playfulness you can explore your own movement patterns and find new ideas.
An exciting experiment and a lot of fun – like the dream of flying and the ease of childhood.
