Graydancer in New Orleans January 23-27

I’m really happy that the NOBLE group has invited me to come out and teach a day-long workshop in New Orleans. It will be my first visit to the city, and it’s a place I’ve wanted to visit all of my life. I’m getting a couple of extra days there just to visit the city, so if you want to schedule private rope sessions, let me know.

Here is the proposed lineup of classes for Saturday the 24th, in case you’re in the neighborhood and are wondering what’s going to happen:

Morning:

The Defining Moment: Getting What You Want Out of Kink

If you’re not sure what you think of rope, dump your preconceived notions and give this one a try. Graydancer brings his humor, sensuality, and ENERGY not just to ropework but to your own fantasies with a specific method for figuring out how to fulfill your own personal kinky desires. If you’re one who’d rather slap on the cuffs and get to the fun, this is a great way to discover the practicality, and erotic anticipation of rope. Whether you consider yourself an artist or sadist, a ropeslut, a painslut, or a damsel in distress, there’s something in the Defining Moment for you.

This class is a variation on the usual “101-301″ in that the approach is going to be a practical one. Not “What do you want to DO?” but “How do you want to _feel_? Rather than start with what you saw in a picture or book, let’s focus on the results you want. Whether you want to play for sex, for pretty, for pain, or some combination, the focus will be on how to DO what you want to do, using principles rather than step-by-step processes. It’s an interactive class with plenty of participation, and demonstrations on a beautiful model using rope and much more. The skill level of this class is appropriate for anyone from the rank beginner (what’s a knot) to Intermediate/advanced, because of its focus on practical skills and principles-based instruction. This has been one of Graydancer’s most popular classes at venue after venue because of its value to kinksters of all levels and interests.

Full-contact Dom

A combination of dance and martial arts, this class focuses on methods of maintaining and utilizing a physical connection between the top and the bottom. Whether you’re focusing on takedowns or sensual rope, using full-contact and focusing techniques can increase the enjoyment of any scene. Remember, if you’re not cheatin’, you ain’t tryin’. (note: this class is subject to change)

Afternoon:

I don’t do rope; it takes too long!” It’s a common refrain heard from people all over. This class aims to dispel that myth, with practical, speedy, and above all erotic techniques to bring rope into your kink. Fast body harnesses to improve your fucklife, methods of handling rope in a sensually effective way, and ideas for to keeping a scene hot from the first wrap to the last tangled ropegasm on the floor.

Whether you’re an experienced rigger, just took Basic Bondage, or are just curious about this whole “rope” thing,  this class will have something in it to help you tie or be tied.

Military style bondage

Military-style bondage draws from the traditions of the samurai, the cavalry, the native Americans, special forces, and even various fictional sources to explore the fun of role-play in a Military style. Explore not only the physical forms of restraint and the reasoning behind them (including how to modify them for the safety and comfort of your “prisoner”) but also the psychological aspects of military discipline, interrogation techniques, and especially the methods of securing and manipulating the male body.

On Saturday night I hope to be able to present a performance at the play party, but that’s going to be contingent on finding a suitably experienced demo model. Unfortunately, my original partner-in-perversion is suffering an injury and won’t be able to accompany me, so that may or may not happen. As it is, I’m going to be relying on the willingness of the NOBiLity to let me tie them up for the various classes.
