The role you typically take in rope.
Someone with whom you can practice rope at least once a week?
Rope bondage of the type we practice in these courses is best practiced with another person. We do not focus on self-tying in this course, and while there will be helpful information for people who exclusively self-tie, there will also be many ties and exercises we practice that rely on a partner. If you don't have the ability to practice between classes, what you will be able to get from the course will be limited. We WILL NOT reject your application based on this factor, but we just want to make sure applicants are aware of that because we don't want anyone disappointed or to feel like they've wasted time and money.
While not required, we highly recommend that practice partners attend classes together, as our classes address both sides of the rope as well as focus on and seek to develop the partnership inherent in rope bondage.
While there will often be someone available to practice with you during class sessions (other students, TAs, instructors, etc.), we cannot guarantee this. You may have to wait longer to get the chance to practice during class, or be willing to split practice time by "switching" with another class member, or may miss out on practicing some activities completely.
Please provide the preferred name and email address of the practice partner(s) who plan(s) to apply to attend classes with you. We use this information to connect applicants in our records. While concerns about trustworthiness, safety, and consent are considered individually, in the case of partnered applicants where one applicant demonstrates more rope experience than the other, we will defer to the more experienced partner.
You are agreeing that you have been involved with rope long enough to know that you have a genuine and abiding interest, and that you are aware that this is an in-depth study of rope bondage requiring extended study and practice. You also agree that you have (or will obtain before classes start) a Rope 101
-level of understanding of rope bondage.

Please briefly describe your experience with rope bondage and/or rope bondage education so far. How would you characterize your interests and experience? How have you been learning about and practicing rope bondage so far? What types of events, classes, or private instruction have you already had, if any? [What we're looking for here is a sense that you have enough experience in rope for you to know that this type of in-depth, extended study is something you're really interested in.]
Please briefly explain why you want to take this course, what you hope to learn from this course, any specific goals you have, and what you plan to do with your learning. [What we're looking for here is a sense of what you want out of rope and, at least at this point, where you want your rope journey to lead in order to help us figure out whether or not we would be the right fit for you and your goals.]
How did you find out about our offerings (through friends, Fetlife, Instagram, a group or other educational event, etc.)? What do you already know about our curriculum and approach to rope education, and what appeals to you about what you know? [What we're looking for here is a sense that you understand how we operate (progression, expectations, devoted time to study and practice, etc.) and that it appeals to you and fits your goals.]
