Rosin/Resin


Tree sap ground into a powder, which is sticky and helps the performer grip. Rosin is sticky, as compared to Mag, which absorbs sweat and therefore stops the performer from being slippery. Used mainly by aerialists in assisting with difficult manoeuvres such as heel, toe and neck hangs. Also used by ballet dancers working on pointe, and musicians playing string instruments.
