► AERIAL HOOP (90 min): A mixture of intricate fabric moves mixed with high impact moves await in this 90 minute, intermediate workshop! Some sequences will challenge your power, others will rely on your brain ability to remember where everything goes. Some drops, some spins, some splits, we will cover a variety of movements styles and types; there’s something for everyone here! Students should be able to constantly invert in the air, and be comfortable with basic drops and movements.
► AERIAL SILK (90 min): In this 90 minuted, intermediate hoop workshop we will cover a variety of moves and skills. We will start with some fun, quirky poses and flows before working on some harder movements (or progressions to help you get there on your own). Finally, we will finish with some spinning techniques! Students should be able to already mount the hoop and be comfortable with being on the top bar.
► AERIAL CONDITIONING (60 min): In this 60 minute workshop we will cover a variety to strength exercises to increase your aerial power and stamina. These exercises are good for most aerial apparatus, and can be modified for all levels of current strength. Some will work on large muscle groups, while others will be focused on smaller muscle isolations and mobility. Technique is key, and the focus will be on teaching you proper alignment so you can continue to improve for beyond the workshop. Please arrive 10/15 minutes early to warm yourself up before this workshop starts.
