As for the single trapeze, aerial hoop and tissu? I must admit is not as difficult as I first thought, once you get the hang of the techniques.
For those who are unfamiliar with the term tissu (including myself before I began), they are two pieces of material around 20 meters in length hung from the ceiling. You loop the material around various parts of your body in a simple technique allowing you to suspend. The tension on the material comes from your own body weight. In the beginning it may not feel particularly secure, however your confidence increases after you complete a few positions and it feels pretty darn cool!
You may not look particularly graceful, as you endeavor to wrap the material around your foot to enable you to climb the tissu or struggle to swing your body up and over the trapeze bar. However, you do feel quite proud of yourself when you finally succeed.
My second attempt
Men can do it too!
So, pull out your lycra pants and volunteer a few friends to join in for a fun night. You may discover a hidden talent or an opportunity to show off in front of your friends
. Even if you don't continue with one of their many courses, you will have gained a greater appreciation for the art of circus skills.
So open your diary and pencil it in!
