This one week course will provide an introduction to the wonderful world of aerial. Work through translating classics dance vocabulary like pirouettes, passes, and pas de chats without gravity stopping you. Pulling from the fundamentals of dance technique and awareness to translate into the air, this course will focus on the Silks and Hoop as core apparatus to take you through movement on a variety of aerial disciplines to develop sequences and routines. Combing dance choreography with aerial skills, there will also be tasters in Slings and Spanish Web to expand your creativity. Taught by aerial experts with a dance pedigree, you will explore musicality and transitions on and off the aerial equipment building towards a lyrical routine to be performed, and professionally filmed at the end of the week.
Course consists of 20 hours of aerial tuition across the week. Classes start at 11am and run until 4pm daily - with a lunchbreak factored into the timetable. There is a performance and filming on Friday afternoon to which friends and family are invited.
