with Jenny Atomik
Through Sat, Dec. 09, 2017
Workshop meets Friday 6:30-8:30pm and Saturday 4:30-6:30pm
Join rope artist Jenny Atomik for this two-day Master Class aimed at creating connection between the ground and the air. Inspired by aerial dance, tumbling, and aerial acrobatics, this workshop will explore mounts, ascents, and spins that integrate ground choreography to the air in connection with the rope.
Depending on participant interest, we will also spend some time working on dynamic skills such as twists and the pirouette.
Pre-requisites: Participants should be confident with the fundamentals of beat technique, including straddle switches, and should be capable of executing at least a few pull-ups on the rope.
