About the Event
About the Workshop:
In this 90-minute workshop, we keep it low. Students will work on interesting combinations using spin techniques and fluid floor movement. This workshop connects what we do on the ground with how we get in the air. You do NOT need to be a dancer to participate in this workshop, just come ready to move!
Prerequisites: A solid understanding of basic lyra or trapeze skills, including straddle back, is recommended. Clean inversions are highly recommended. Must be able to mount your apparatus* unassisted. *While this workshop is primarily taught on lyra, trapeze students are welcome to join as much of the work we'll be doing can be translated to trapeze.
Please wear comfortable, form-fitting athletic clothing. A shirt that is fitted or can be tucked in will keep you covered when you go upside down. Pants or leggings that cover the back of your knees are a MUST! Be sure to bring water. Space is limited to 6 students to allow for social distancing and masks are required at all times.

Her performance work with SOAR Aerial Dance focuses on collaborating with professional, local artists to bridge the gap between aerial dance and performance art in her community, telling honest stories along the way.
