Dynamic Pathways 4 Week Aerial Series with Cody Hayman
Starts Friday October 6th 2017
This 4 week series focuses on utilizing momentum to efficiently flow through movements on both bar and vertical apparatuses. We will look at beats on each apparatus, examine how to use momentum to transition to and from familiar postures, and learn how to shoot and pivot your hips. Students will finish this series with a solid understanding of the components of dynamic movement and the tools to work on or towards half and full releases.
