Duo Trapeze with Jessica Perry

  • Gravity Aerial Arts 5925 East Evans Avenue, Unit 125 Denver, CO, 80222 United States (map)

WHAT: Ever feel like your apparatus doesn't give you as much boost as it could? Well come try doubles trapeze! Where a live, active partner is part of the deal. Learn to hold and support each other up to, around and down from the trapeze. In a base/flyer dynamic learn tempos, shapes and transitions. Wear leggings that cover your knees and calves and clothes that won't move too much upside down. Bring wrists wraps if you have them. Aimed at aerialists and flyers with some experience swinging and inverting. Suitable for anyone who has a basic aerial knowledge.

Jessica Perry is an international circus artist.

WHO: I spent a large part of my childhood living on a small sailing vessel with my parents, climbing the mast and swinging from the rigging. When I was ten, we went back to Colorado and I started circus because my parents didn’t know what else to do with me.

I started with flying trapeze and aerial acrobatics in Colorado and then performed with Le Petit Cirque in California while I finished school. At 17, I spent a year completing the full-time protrack program at the New England Center of Circus Arts in Vermont. Then, I was accepted to the National Centre for Circus Arts in London where I also performed with Stufish productions in SOHO and CIRCA in Depart. Since graduating, I have been touring the world with AIDA cruises and other solo projects.

PREREQUISITES: Can safely get up to sitting and down from a trapeze bar unaided.
