What We Do and How This Works
- Most of our work revolves around our in-person, multi-class courses: Rope 201, Rope 301 and Rope 401. These three courses help tops and bottoms move from beginner to intermediate proficiency in rope through both floor work, partial suspension, and full suspension. They run through the spring and fall of each year near Richmond, VA (USA).
- We also run various in-person workshops at different points throughout the year. These are not offered on any set schedule and depend greatly on the interests and readiness of local practitioners. These usually occur in Richmond, VA as well, though we sometimes run these in different locations.
- Finally, we do offer private instruction for those for whom our courses and workshops aren’t an option. Private instruction is always conducted at our private rope studio near Richmond, VA.
We make some of our content available for study online. However, online instruction is not our primary goal. We make content available online in the hopes that it will be helpful to others, but our focus remains on in-person instruction.
While all of our offerings on this site correspond to in-person instruction, we do make the courses and workshops below available online. These were originally designed for in-person instruction, but we have tried to adapt them to make them useful online.
The courses below make up our “core curriculum” for rope study. Where possible, we would recommend people take these courses in order, as each course builds on the one before it. The extended time available in a course allows for more in-depth study and more individual attention.
101 is offered online and supplemented by in-person mini courses throughout the year. 201, 301, and 401 are typically offered in the fall and spring.
We provide a variety of workshops throughout the year, both locally and in other areas. Workshops typically “fill in the gaps” between courses, go into greater detail on something we address in our courses, or provide a “brief taste” of a concept or exercise from our courses.
Workshops do not have a set schedule, so it’s best to check the calendar and/or subscribe to our newsletter to make sure you don’t miss anything.
We are available to work with you in one-on-one or small-group private instruction sessions to study any rope-related skills or concepts you’d like. Time and related expenses can be shared with others. For more information, please visit our Private Instruction page.
