Starting next week there will be a few changes to the beginners and intermediate classes.
With the new space, to keep the numbers to a good level allowing everyone to get enough attention to learn we now have a booking system in place that will allow you to reserve and pay for a place on line. The booking form is at the bottom of the event page on the site.
Also as of next week the pricing for the intermediate class will go up slightly.
Riggers – $20
Models – $10
Switching – $15
The events page can be found at https://rope-dojo.com/events/
As some of you may already be aware, the dojo is moving to a new home. The last lessons at the Leichhardt dojo will be held on the 14th and 15th of October, after which there will be a two week break while we move with classes restarting on the 4th and 5th of November.
The new dojo is located at 30B Ashmore st, Erskineville not far from the station, the entrance is through the large gate just buzz to be let in.
I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone at the new space
Just 4 months to go until the 2014 Sydney Rope Festival and the team are really excited, we have some amazing talent from here and overseas coming with Hourai Kasumi and Hajime Kinoko headlining this year.
Along with local talent including __S__ from Melbourne, Miss Evil Gen from Brisbane and the Sydney Rope Dojo team.
As some of you may have noticed I have been doing a lot of work on the website, that will be continuing until the festival with most of the class information and show videos from the last festival going up over the next month. To stay up to date join our newsletter, you can find the link on the bottom right of the Sydney Rope Festival website.
Also Kasumi san and Kazami san will be running 5 days of intense workshops in the week leading up to the festival. With only 10 people per class, the remaining tickets won’t last long.
Trained in Japan, Mistress Milla Reika is highly reputed for her skill and flair in art of Japanese Rope Bondage (Kinbaku). Her performances possess an exotic mix Oriental and Western styles and influences, fueled by her own desire to visually express the dynamics and beauty of human interconnection.
Milla’s entry to the world of SM and Kinbaku began after moving to Japan in 2011 where she began working as a Pro-Domme while gradually building her career on-stage. Currently she runs regular SM events alongside private sessions in Osaka alongside performing and teaching throughout Japan and internationally. As you can see from these images, and her Vimeo channel here:
We have an amazing master class running this weekend with Milla Reika if you are in Sydney this weekend don’t miss out.
Also I will be running a suspension refresher before the first class on Saturday for 2 hrs
We are very lucky to have secured Yukimura Haruki for 4 days of classes in mid March before he flies down to Melbourne. This is also the first time Sydney and Melbourne rope dojos have teamed up to bring one of Japan’s most famous Nawashi to the country, hopefully it will be the first of many.
Yukimura sensei is a very inspiring man, in his mid eighties, he has seen the progression of Shibari for some of it’s earliest beginnings and in that time he has developed his own sensual style of rope he calls Nawaza or the caressing style.
Shibari is often referred to as a sensual and connective art, Yukimura’s style of tying embodies that exact concept, with a strong focus on body language and feel. Tickets will be available soon.
15th – 18th March 2014
$300 Individual day
$500 Two days
Tickets can be purchased here
