The second half is designed for students with a higher level of flexibility, and will look at ways to manipulate the rope to create contortion shapes in the air. We will explore traditional tricks with a focus on how to add intensive flexibility to the shape; as well, students will learn how to use contortion knowledge leading in and/or out of specific wraps and drop sets to provide options for greater transitional movements. Students are expected to arrive to this class warmed up.


Specializing in Flexibility, Hand Balancing, and Aerial Rope, Daniel Patrick comes from the hills of New England where he began his journey of circus arts at the age of twenty-two. Spending three years in a professional development program, this silly-natured guy tested his physical capabilities by training with hand balancing and contortion coach, Sellam Ouahabi as well as Cirque du Soleil twins, Elsie and Serenity Smith, gaining a strong understanding of both aerial and ground acrobatic technique. 

Upon graduating from the New England Center for Circus Arts, Daniel has found success working for a variety of events with Nimble Arts, Cirque Imagination, and SHOW Circus Studio presenting his mysterious hand balancing routine and charismatic rope act. With the Boston Circus Guild he was a core performer in their popular Speakeasy Circus production and later was accepted to work with the Santa Fe Opera in the modern version of Carmen as an acrobatic club-goer and smuggler. 

Now working with Aerial Horizon (based in San Antonio, TX) as a teacher and performer, Daniel continues to develop his skills and choreography creating artistic performance with a contemporary style.
