A trapeze is a short horizontal bar hung by ropes or metal straps from a ceiling support. It is an aerial apparatus commonly found in circus performances. Trapeze acts may be static, spinning (rigged from a single point), swinging or flying, and may be performed solo, double, triple or as a group act.
The name of the apparatus reflects the trapezoid shape made by the horizontal bar, ropes and ceiling support.
The fixed trapeze class aims to develop the skills and abilities necessary for the practice of the activity, as well as to be able to interact with the element freely.
In this way, you will also gain security, control, confidence and above all, enjoy yourself having good time.
Aerial silks (also known as aerial contortion, aerial ribbons, aerial tissues, fabric, ribbon) is a type of performance in which one or more artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a fabric. The fabric may be hung as two pieces, or a single piece, folded to make a loop, classified as hammock silks. Performers climb the suspended fabric without the use of safety lines and rely only on their training and skill to ensure safety. They use the fabric to wrap, suspend, drop, swing, and spiral their bodies into and out of various positions.
Calisthenics is the result of the search for mastery over one’s own human body.
The word Calisthenics comes from the Greek word Kallos (beauty) and Sthenos (strength), and is defined as a system of exercises that focus on the movements of muscle groups, working on strength, endurance and resistance, with the ultimate goal of developing agility, physical strength and flexibility.
The goal is to try to achieve the greatest muscle concentration with correct body alignment.
Calisthenics is the most convenient sports base to be applied to all sports thanks to the control of elementary physical capacities through body weight.
We can find it present in sports such as martial arts, athletic gymnastics, parkour, yoga, climbing, dance, pole dance, street workout …
