Rope 1

About

(Also known as corde lisse and aerial rope.)

Rope is an aerial circus skill that involves dynamic shapes and climbs on a hanging rope.  

One of the more challenging skills, Rope is closely connected to Silks and uses similar techniques. Exercising your core and upper body strength, you’ll focus on dynamic and creative ways to climb the rope, involving various positions and drops.

Who it's for

Rope 1 is suitable for complete beginners OR those who have completed an Introduction to Aerial course or Circus Arts 1 Aerial. 

If you want to learn aerial circus but aren't sure what skill to focus on, have a look at our Introduction to Aerial course.

Our Level 1 courses are based on curriculums that are the same each term, so we don't recommend repeating them. However, you can try a Level 1 course in a different skill.
