About the workshop
Tops and bottoms are quick to say that body awareness is a highly desirable quality in a rope bottom. But what is body awareness? How do we cultivate body awareness as a skill? And how does it inform our rope bottoming? This day will be a day of getting in touch with our bodies to better understand how they work in rope. The day will include of a discussion on what it means to be a “body aware bottom” followed by a number of exercises designed to help you evaluate and cultivate your own body awareness.

Who teaches this class? This workshop is taught by Fuoco.
Feminist. Performance Artist. Switch. Coffee enthusiast.
Fuoco began her rope journey as a bottom in Phoenix five years ago. Since then she had the good fortune to spend a year in London where she gained
exposure to the broader European rope scene and had the opportunity to work with some incredibly talented bottoms and riggers. Upon moving back to the United States, she began presenting at cons around the country sharing her love of rope. She is switchy in rope and a vocal advocate for rope bottoms.
When she’s not doing rope, Fuoco is a full time circus student, constantly training to build strength and flexibility. Her dedicated study of the mechanics of the body make her especially interested in developing more comprehensive education for bottoms informed by these practices.
