About the Event
About the Workshop:
Lyra, or aerial hoop, is a beautiful circular apparatus. We will explore basic Lyra mounts, spinning, and skills with proper form and technique in this 2 hour workshop. We’ll break down skills and techniques and then join them together into a flowy sequence.
Pre-requisites: Some lyra experience required (e.g. previous lyra classes, our Intro to Lyra workshop or a private or semi-private lyra lesson). Ability to invert unassisted is recommended but not required.
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 8 students. (Age 13+)
About the Instructor:
Gena is a movement artist, aerial hoop coach and the founding artistic director of SOAR Aerial Dance. Aerial arts, specifically Lyra, has been her passion since 2009. Though Gena was never a trained dancer, she has a natural athleticism that she uses to bring her own style of movement and grace to her artistry. Her work with SOAR focuses on collaborating with professional, and local artists throughout the Triangle to bridge the gap between contemporary circus and performance art in her community.
Gena has performed and taught throughout the East Coast and has travelled all over the country seeking out the best teachers to train with in everything from Pilates and yoga to Aerial Silks and Lyra. She specialises in teaching “Lyra Flow”, a workshop that focuses on learning unique transitions while finding your individualized rhythm and movement style. When she isn’t choreographing, coaching, or staring blissfully at her aerial hoop, you can find her trying to corral her busy toddler.
