A fun and comprehensive class that covers 2 different types of aerial apparatus. Finding the differences and similarities in shapes and transitions between the two. Static trapeze and aerial hoop are both in the “horizontal” or “bar” category of aerial disciplines. We combine both of these apparatuses as their movement vocabularies are similar and complementary.
