About this Workshop
Learn to wrap your splits up like gifts for your audience in this 90 minute workshop. We will be covering a variety of
interesting ways to showcase your flexibility through wraps, footlocks, inversions, & balancing. *Depending on enrollment, you may be sharing an apparatus with 1 other student.
Students should be comfortable inverting in the air with ease, splitting the fabrics, and cleanly puting on & removing footlocks or double dancer's locks. Students should also feel confident in their leg & hip flexibility.
About the Instructor
As a versatile aerialist, Waverly Jones specializes in several apparatuses including Aerial Silks (Fabric/Tissu), Aerial Hoop (Lyra), Duo Aerial Arts, Spanish web, Corde Lisse (Rope), and Dance Pole Arts. Waverly began performing professionally in January of 2011 when she became a company member of Asheville Aerial Arts. She has since performed at countless festivals, galas, fund raisers, carnivals, corporate events, weddings, concerts, and private parties. In July of 2015 Waverly and dear friend, Heather Poole, opened Asheville’s first and only certified aerial and movement arts studio: Empyrean Arts. Empyrean Arts provides students with a safe and supportive environment for anyone wanting to explore personal development through movement art education. Waverly holds a Master Trainer Instructor Certification in Pole Dance and Fitness from Dakota Fox’s Aradia Fitness USA, and in the spring of 2017 she collaborated with Dakota Fox and Heather Poole to create Aerial Silks and Aerial Hoop teacher training programs for Aradia Fitness. More than anything, Waverly deeply enjoys connecting and growing with others through the performance and instruction of aerial arts.
