Drops Deconstructed with Jessica Perry

  • Gravity Aerial Arts 5925 East Evans Avenue Denver, CO, 80222 United States (map)

WHO: Born and raised mostly in Colorado, Jessica has traveled the world learning about circus from every angle. She started by climbing the rigging as a small child on her parent’s sailboat as well as every rock and tree she could reach. She started Flying Trapeze in Denver with the Imperial Flyers. At 18, she graduated NECCA”s Protrack in Brattleboro, Vermont, the National Centre for Circus arts in 2016, and has since been performing on cruise ships and variety shows in Europe and following her duo partner around learning about partnering on trapeze. She is very passionate about the potential for circus as a means of communication and expression of important ideas- like the importance of having pretty pointed toes.

WHAT: Vertical Aerial drops come in several different families. Slack drops, star drops, bomb drops, etc. Come and learn how to recognize drops for what they are, take them apart and remake them as your own! 

Please where leggings and bring leg warmers or boots for ankle drops.
