NB 2 hour long technique classes

 

Dance - All levels 
9.00am – 10.00am
The Creation Space – Magalie Lanriot

A festival hit every year this class will ease you gently into your day. Beginning with a floor warm that pays attention to sensation, initiation and weight we’ll then expand into exploring balance and falling off of it finding ease of movement in and out of the floor.

Drawing from release and yoga, this class culminates with learning phrases to find control, abandon and fluidity.

This is essentially a dance warm up so some prior dance experience and ability to pick up movement material is desirable.

NB you should have some dance experience to join this class

 

Multi corde Technique and creative lab
10.15am – 12.15pmInter/Skilled/Advanced
Saar Rombout & Shereen Hussain

In this class we will research the possibilities of what you can do with a bunch of little ropes hanging vertically. We will work on techniques that are inspired by vertical rope, straps, silks and handstands. We will use vocabulary created by Saar as a starting point, but also work on creating your own material in and around the ropes.

Pre- requisite you have to have an intermediate to advanced level in at least one other vertical apparatus.

 

Counterbalance fabric & cocoon creative lab
12.30pm – 2.30 – Inter/Skilled/Advanced
Chantal McCormick & Aisling Ni Chealaigh

Two cocoons or fabrics are rigged at each end of a large spreader bar so that you counterbalance each other as you move – so much fun to be had!

Working in pairs you’ll explore how to move seamlessly from floor to air and back down again running, spinning, flying.

Chantal will share with you techniques developed by Fidget Feet using this system for their show Strange feathers.  

Double Cloud Swing technique and creative lab
2.45pm – 4.45pm  Inter/Skilled/Advanced
Saar Rombout

Double cloud-swing consists of 2 ropes hanging in a U-shape under each other in which you can drop from one to another, knot them through each other and swing. This is a little known apparatus and technique meaning that Saar has created all of her own vocabulary.

In the class we’ll work through a range of techniques; balances, dynamic, drops and knots but also find time to explore creating your own movement.

Pre requisite - For this class you don’t need to have experience in cloud swing, but you do need to have an intermediate to advanced level in at least one other kind of aerial apparatus.

 

Massage and stretch
5.00pm – 6.00pm All levels
Magalie Lanriot

In this warm down session, you’ll be led through simple Tailendaise massage sequences (Shiatsu and Thai), to ease up any pain and soreness in the body and working with a partner to encourage greater flexibility, find space in the body, and a practical understanding of how to use these techniques to enhance your training beyond this session.
