Event description

Description

Upswing’s unique bungee dance technique will empower you to bounce and soar weightlessly through the air.

Ever wanted to learn how to fly? Attached to a specifically designed harness, you can learn how to defy gravity with grace and ease.

Masterclasses are intensive four-hour sessions lead by experienced dance and aerial teachers. They will cultivate your control, core strength and coordination - coaching you in the basic moves that culminate in a choreographed group routine at the end of class.

Beginner’s classes specialise in core bungee dance technique, perfect for first-timers who are ready to try something new.

What you will be doing

Over the day students (a maximum of 8) will master the basics – including good posture and simple movements. Progressing from this to basic bounce techniques, consolidating connected movements and building up to longer sequences. By the end of the session you will have mastered a choreographed piece of connected movements.

Who will be teaching you

Simon Lindsay is an experienced bungee practitioner and body control pilates teacher, who has been collaborating and teaching with Upswing since 2013. Simon trained as a professional dancer, graduating from Rambert School with a BA Hons degree in Ballet and Contemporary Dance in 2007.

Upswing is a registered charity, all profits go directly back in to subsidising the important work we do with communities.




FAQs

What should I wear?

Working in harness is great fun but can be a little tough on your skin. We recommend wearing several layers around your hips & waist for maximum comfort. Generally snug fitting tracksuit bottoms or leggings and a long sleeved t-shirt that you can tuck in works well & even better (top tip) lycra, neoprene or bicycle shorts underneath.

Do I need a certain level of fitness?

Bungee Dance Masterclasses challenge core strength and upper body strength. We recommend participants have a good level of overall fitness before taking part in a masterclass.

What's the refund policy?

Attendees can receive refunds up to 30 days before the event start date.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes, or this can be shown on a smart phone device.

Is my ticket transferrable?

Yes. You can update your registration information at any time to transfer a ticket to another person.

Are there minimum and maximum age requirements ?

Upswing classes are for students aged 16 and over. There is no maximum age, in fact we regularly teach people aged 60+.

I have an old injury - will I be OK?

Please let us know on the registration form about any medical conditions or injuries.

Is it OK if I'm a bit late for a masterclass?

It is a requirement for all our classes that students take part in our thorough warm up, which targets and engages every muscle that you will you employ in doing this activity. This will help protect you against any strains or injuries. If students are unavoidably delayed the teacher will where possible instruct them to carry out their own warm up, but this might not always be practicable, and for safety reasons the student might not be allowed to join the class.
