Fabric Technique: Skilled/ Advanced
Open to movers and aerialists at entry level. You should be able to hold your own body weight in your arms but no prior experience is required. We’ll begin each class with stretches and strengthening exercises specific to the equipment, focusing on building good foundations and understanding of placement before moving onto learning basic vocabulary, locks and keys and creative play on which we’ll build day-by-day. Wear close fitting exercise clothes - nothing too restricting or too baggy, bare feet, NO bare armpits and no jewellery.
Fabric Lab: Skilled/ Advanced (week two)
This lab class will journey through using technique in order to let go of it. Working from set sequences it will use improvisation as a tool to let go, grow, expand and develop the sequences into a full dance.
We’ll explore the concept of fluid inside our bodies: evoking waves/spirals with a fully connected, resilient body, that like water has unlimited possibilities of freedom and movement for dancing in the air.
Pre requisites: you must have an aerial practice of minimum two years, be able to straddle and feel comfortable spending extended periods of time in the fabric. Be willing to play, explore and open to new ways to work in the air.
(Gyrokinesis class is highly recommended for people taking this class).
