Silks & Trapeze Workshops

with Joe Pinzon

As a complement to our Matthew Casey Lyra and Hammock workshops also this month, we’re bringing in Joseph Pinzon to teach us some Silks and Trapeze!

Joseph Pinzon is the founder and creative producer of Short Round Productions, an LA circus company known for creating the show Filament. He holds an MS in Arts Leadership from USC and is also a graduate of the National Circus School/École Nationale de Cirque in Montreal, where he specialized in aerial techniques.

With over 25 years of international performing experience, Joseph has worked around the world with companies such as Cirque Éloize, Compagnia Finzi Pasca, Cirque du Soleil, Les 7 Doigts de la Main, Chamäleon Productions GmbH, and Wintergarten Varieté. As an educator, he has taught and lectured at NCS/ENC in Montreal, NCCA in London, and NICA in Melbourne.

Joseph will be teaching his signature “Don’t Be Basic, Use Basics” intermediate level workshop for Silks at two different times and a similar workshop for Trapeze just once.

These workshops are on the week of April 24th and 25th, 2021. Each workshop is 90 minutes long. Neither workshop includes warm-up, but the space will be open for 30 minutes before to workshop attendees to warm themselves up.

  • Intermediate Silks on Tuesday, April 20th at 6pm
  • Intermediate Trapeze on Wednesday, April 21st at 6pm
  • Intermediate Silks on Sunday, April 25th at 11:30am

He will also be available for Private Lessons April 19th-25th; contact Front Desk to book time or for more information.
