Avoid the pitfalls of performing trick…trick…trick…that can turn all your hard work into a snoozefest. Without the artistic application of movement quality, aerial is just fitness. This workshop is designed to add expression to your work, finetune your ability to master and manipulate your own, unique movement quality, and take your aerial work from a series of tricks to something that can’t be duplicated. We will work alone and in groups and pairs in a fun, comfortable environment to become familiar with our own natural compulsions for movement and how to pull it out of thin air with confidence when you need it. This workshop takes place mostly on the ground but with some time spent in the air.
