Dynamic Technique for Verticals

This class will focus on the technique of momentum-based movement. Students will learn the subtleties of beat pathways resulting in increased power and fluidity.

In this workshop we will learn a distinctive piece of choreography using obscure skills and alternative variations of well known movements. Surprising and complex, the piece taught will tell a story with a compelling ascending sequence intertwined with sculptural moments and exciting (but accessible) dynamic flourishes and drops.

Vertical Partnering
6-8pm
Early Registration $55
After March 23rd, $60

This workshop will broaden any students' vocabulary in partnering on rope and silk. New skills and transitions will be introduced; ways of ascending, descending, mirroring, supporting and spinning. An emphasis will be placed on different transitions; switching base and flyer positions in the air to create a fluid partnering dynamic. Students will leave this workshop with new material and a deeper understanding of the various relationships that can be utilized in the air to create their own unique material.

Prereq: Ability to invert multiple times, straight leg straddle up, ability to stay in the air for 2 minutes.
