Kerren McKeeman – Static Trapeze (Turns & Transitions)

From Moscow to Montreal to Buenos Aires, Kerren has performed trapeze in intimate theaters, vast arenas, and under the majestic Big Top of Cirque du Soleil.  After performances with Troupe Vertigo her career and nomadic touring life took flight with companies such as the Midnight Circus, Cirque du Soleil, and Cirque Mechanics.

 

From fundamental movement under the bar, to more dynamic turns in the ropes, this workshop will focus on how to create and control motion on the static trapeze.  We will practice standard tricks on the trapeze and focus on how to transition in and out of the positions smoothly, as we all know— it’s not what you do but how you do it!   There is a conditioning component to the class to build up core and shoulder strength, which will prepare students for more advanced skills in the future. Students will also have the opportunity to work on a short sequence and put it to music for a small performance at the end of the workshop!
