About the event

This workshop focuses on finding your authentic aerial movement by discovering how your body relates to your apparatus. In this workshop, we will uncover how to authentically connect with your own body and look at taking that connection into the air. Aerialists are encouraged to bring a movement phrase or performance piece they would like to revamp, style, or flesh out. Gena will work with you on: how to transition seamlessly, smoothing out rough parts, getting comfortable with movement, and musicality. Bring your music (if you have it) and come with your ideas so we can bring them to life! *Earbuds are highly encouraged*

This workshop is not about acquiring skills, it is all about how to create a stunning piece that looks and feels good for YOU (the artist).


This workshop is open to all aerialists who are currently working on choreography or movement phrasing and want help bringing their ideas to life. All apparatuses are welcome!

About the instructor:

Aerial arts have been Gena's passion since 2009. She has spent over 10 years navigating her path of creativity with a focus on physical awareness, movement capabilities, and how they pertain to the human body. Her certifications in Pilates, yoga, and personal training complement her aerial coaching. Gena has worked with many artists and dance educators to help perfect her aerial skill set, including Boleyn Willis-Zeger, Rachel Strickland, Shannon McKenna, and Lori Hernandez. Gena is also the founder of Durham-based SOAR Aerial Arts: a collaboration with professional, local artists to bridge the gap between aerial dance and performance art in her community.
