Fuoco

fuoco began her rope journey as a bottom in Phoenix in 2012 and shortly thereafter moved to London, where much of her early rope learning happened. Upon moving back to the US, she began presenting at cons and intensives around the country sharing her love of rope. As an educator, she's decidedly non-dogmatic in her approach to teaching. Her classes aim to help bottoms to better understand their bodies in movement, and to offer riggers the knowledge to adapt their tying to the unique needs of their partners. She recently stepped into the role of Director of Education for Shibari Study and is excited to think about shibari education in a new medium.

When she's not doing rope, fuoco is a professional acrobat. Her dedicated study of the mechanics of the body makes her especially interested in developing more comprehensive education informed by these practices. She's also a leftist who believes that kink is inherently political. She strives to bring her politics, her values, and an accountability for those values into her teaching spaces.
