Week 1 – 6/3/2017 (Sarah) – The art of the in-between (intermediate or above)
This workshop focuses on finding smooth and effective transitions to bridge together your aerial vocabulary. You will learn new and innovative transitions that you can add to your repertoire. This workshop will also give you tools to discover your own pathways and creative approach to sequencing.

Pre-requisites: This workshop is designed for an intermediate level. Students must have a solid understanding of foundational skills including same and opposite side wraps, hip key, s-wrap, various footlocks and ability to invert (without cheating) multiple times throughout the duration of the workshop.

Week 2 – 6/17/2017 – Style and Flare (beginning or above)

This workshop focuses on adding your unique style and own personal flare to your aerial movement. Please come prepared with 1 to 2 min of aerial material that you feel very comfortable with to use in the exercises. The material you choose to use can be at any level technically, but you must be able to repeat it multiple times throughout the workshop. This workshop utilizes concepts of musicality, extraneous movement, and improvisational exercises.
