The series presents 8 stand-alone classes, each exploring a different and specific topic in ground-based acrobatic training.

Some cover solo skills, while others address partner skills - though no partner is required to register. Student may sign up for a single date, or register for multiple classes - it's 100% up to you! Think of it as a workshop series with a little something for everyone. Each class is $35.

What does it take to create a solo act? Should we link every skill we know into one sequence and call it a night? Should we choreograph to music? Does a solo need a character? What should my solo mean? So many questions - creating a solo out of thin air can be daunting!

This mini-session will help acrobats of any level and in any discipline find their choreographic voice and performance quality. We will follow a road map of composition techniques including formulas and prompts, music and character. We'll discuss the role of costuming and look at performing from a holistic point of view.

Come with nothing, leave with a blueprint for your very own solo. This workshop is open to students at any level!
