One Dance UK Discussion: All levels
Following on from last years’ 1-day aerial symposium we are working in partnership with One Dance UK towards hosting a 2-day aerial symposium at The Point in (Jan 13th/14th 2018) and looking to make this an annual event. From 4pm onwards we’ll be inviting you to tell us what you’d like to hear about; what information both practical and theoretical could help improve both your personal practise and the overall sector. This is your chance to influence, prompt and propose subjects about the aerial art form and that you want to hear about in the hosted round table discussions from 4.30 – 6.30 over food (BYO or there will be supper and drink pack to purchase from The Point.) Act refinement sharings from week 1 will start immediately after in the theatre at 6.45 – 7.45.

Pro Aerial Clinic: Strictly Advanced/professional only
As professional Aerial practitioners how often do we get the chance (or give ourselves the opportunity) to take a class?
At the EADF this year we have 2 new International aerial tutors – Sarah Poole (one of the lead aerial coaches at ENC in Montreal) and Ana Prada (Costa Rica) teaching a full day of fabric and corde lisse.
Ana works through deconstructing technique to dig down into the fundamentals that allow for fluid ease of movement in the air; applying her Gyrokinesis awareness, yoga practise and huge fabric knowledge to question what can we release and soften, how can we float the pelvis to dance in the fabric.
As one of the lead aerial tutors at Ecole National de Cirque in Montreal Sarah has a wealth of experience of working with elite aerialists to personalise their technique and liberate their true potential; name your favourite rope artists to emerge from ENC in the last few years – Sarah coached them!
