In the beginning there was rope. And one day, two sweet girls by the name of Jenny and Meredith stumbled across said rope, and magic began to happen. Come experience some of that same magic and learn how to harness and master this magical rope yourself. These two sweet girls will break down the basics of rope, from climbing to inverting and throwing in some drops and locks along your journey. Your core strength will be challenged but strengthened and we are bound to make you sweaty…….or glisten.
This class will offer you the key elements you need to build your aerial strength and stamina to keep you on higher ground! Although similar to silks in terms of technique, rope does produce a bit more friction. Please make sure that your lower back and knees are covered.

This class is open to all who have graduated from Beginning Rope. This class will push you further on your rope journey as you learn more complex moves and tricks. Come and become atomik yourself!
