Rope Play Lab: Stay after class keep playing and practicing!

This a Rope Dojo Elective. Rope Dojo Electives are open to those who play at one or both ends of the rope.

REQUISITE SKILLS FOR ALL ATTENDING:

Minimum – Basic two-column ties. This is for ALL ATTENDEES. If you don’t know a two column tie, come at 6:30pm and you’ll get a quick lesson.
Pair attendance is highly encouraged. You don’t need to be a couple. It’s just easier to bring a practice buddy with you.
If attending as a solo student, you’ll be paired with another solo student.
This method was developed by Midori in the early days of Rope Dojo with the explicit purpose of moving people to tie and play from a deeper sensory and intuitive place ~ and to leave behiind awkwardness and uncertainty. This method is rooted in the Rope Dojo® philosophy – and thus will be presented in a rather uncommon way. Trust the method. It works! A bit of the “wax on, wax off” if you will…

You do not have to be a Rope Dojo graduate to attend. If you’ve not attended, this class will provide excellent foundation for Dojo. If you are a graduate, it’s designed to enhance your effectiveness and build on the core curriculum.

The next Rope Dojo will be September 16 – 17 in Baltimore.

Doors open at 6:30pm. Instructions start promptly at 7pm. Please be on time as the class is tightly scheduled.

Safety scissors or safe cutting device
