Colleen Richey began aerial training in 2010. A former gymnast and swimmer with a strong yoga background, Colleen brings a keen eye for the form and technique required in aerial acrobatics. She also loves the opportunity for expression and creativity that aerial dance has given her. With a combined focus on form and expression, she encourages her students to explore the art of aerial silks while building a strong, balanced, and healthy body. Colleen mainly trains aerial silks and rope. She also dabbles in static trapeze and aerial straps.

Quick Hits – 5 tips when kicking the bag

Erik-jumping-roundhouse

1.  When hitting the bag with front kicks,  don’t hit the bag with your toes!  Point your foot, bend your toes back, and hit with the ball of your foot.

2.  When hitting the bag with a roundhouse kick, pivot your supporting foot so your heel faces the bag by the time you make contact.  Hit with your shin, not your foot.

3.  Hit with your heel when striking the bag with a side kick.  This protects your ankle from undue pressure.

4.  Hit the bag with the outside of your heel when doing hook kicks.

5.  When executing a spinning back kick, heel kick, or back fist, look over your shoulder.  This will help turn your body into the strike and improve your accuracy.

6.  We said there were 5 tips.  Don’t be greedy.
