How the Magic Back Hammock Came to Be

I love creating new moves. Typically, I create moves through systematic logic and by categorizing, exhausting all combinations and possibilities. (When people come to study aerial with me, this is what they come for.) But sometimes, moves just happen upon you out of happenstance. I have heard many serendipitous stories from aerialists about how they came across this move or that move. Well, today, you get to hear how I caught my own lucky unicorn of a move, with the help of Allie Cooper.

As you probably already know, I have been documenting aerial rope (corde lisse) moves with the help of Rain Anya and Allie Cooper. When Allie flew out from California to South Carolina (where I used to live) to help me film some moves for the Aerial Rope Manual, I was pregnant. Please don’t think of me as forever pregnant. At present, my son is a walkin’ talkin’ toddler, and Allie is the one who has a big fat belly if you can believe it! She is actually due this month – June 2016! So, as you watch this video, pretend Allie is preggo and I’m the skinny one.

I have been slowly working my way through the hundreds of rope videos that I filmed with Allie Cooper and Rain Anya. I have finally arrived at the back hammock series, which has just been released into the video library. Among the series is a brand new move, which was created completely by accident. Listen to the interview to hear the story.

As you listen to the interview, see if you can tell the difference between these two pictures:

Hint: The picture on the left above is the traditional back hammock. The picture on the right is the magic back hammock (as dubbed by Allie Cooper and myself).

For those of you with a paying membership, you can view the full video of the magic back hammock by going to the video library. Go to the rope category and scroll to the bottom of the page. (You’ll be scrolling a while. We have over 125 rope videos now!!!!)


In the comments below – Feel free to share your crazy story of the cool move you made up and how you stumbled across it.
