King County Community Event – Circus Arts at Versatile Arts!
October 16, 2022 @ 6:15 pm - 7:45 pm PDT
Join Recovery Beyond at Versatile Arts for a class on aerial and circus arts! Have you ever tried aerial arts? It involves using two lengths of fabric secured from the ceiling while you use your strength to climb and maneuver the silks. This event is beginner friendly! Under careful instruction, you’ll learn how to wrap the silks around your body and practice new poses.
Each registrant will need to complete an online waiver. The following link takes you to the
website homepage and the waiver is a purple button at the bottom right of the page: https://www.versatilearts.net/
What To Bring / Wear
The main things you need are a water bottle, appropriate clothing, and a sense of adventure!
Please wear snug-fitting clothing that covers your midsection and all the way down your leg. Thick yoga tights/leggings are better than loose-fitting yoga pants. (You can wear shorts over the leggings if you want.) However, don’t wear tights/leggings that are slippery. If they’re pretty shiny, they are likely pretty slippery.
Make sure your shirt fits snugly enough that it will stay in place when you invert. (Or wear one you can tuck in.) Layers are useful. Make sure your clothing has no zippers, belts, studs, or anything else that could catch on the equipment. We will ask you to remove all watches, rings, large earrings, etc, so you might want to leave your valuables in the car or at home to make sure you don’t leave things at the studio. Please avoid using lotions, oils, or heavy perfumes before coming to the studio.
Be fed – but not too much! A recent banana, 1/2 a sandwich, or an energy bar in your belly is
Be hydrated. Again, bring a water bottle with you to class.
Be excited. . . and relaxed! Know that your instructor is not going to ask you to do anything you
are not comfortable with.
