Tango with the Tengu – Suspension Transition ~Educators: Panda & Paisley
Gallery Erato: $75 (duo) Advance: $60 (duo), $75 (duo and PIF donor)
The tengu is a fun and funky chest harness that provides a lot of versatility in flight and in creating shapes. We will explore unique ways to suspend the tengu and create different shapes with this dynamic tie. The tengu provides a structure of a basic chest harness coupled with bent elbows that make this a great option for those being tied who enjoy different arm positions. This sequence will take us from a partial on the ground to a full suspension (those wanting to stay in partials will be able to do so). Students tying will learn fun new transitions and how to navigate this fun functioning tie. Those being tied will explore new arm placements and gain understanding in how to be tied in this unique harness.
