Aerial Dance

Aerial dance classes focus on using the floor to change the behavior of the apparatus and using the apparatus to change how you interact with the floor. Essentially, they will teach you how to view the floor as part of the apparatus, not just something to be used and abandoned.

Currently Registering for Session 4: July 5th - August 29th, 2018.

Dance Hammock (1B+)

Thursdays from 7:40 – 9:10 PM taught by Jenn B in the Blue Room.

Hammock can be a great exploratory and performance tool because it allows you to simply DANCE! Without the entanglement of a fabric tail or the defined edge of a steel bar, you can learn to feel as though you can move as freely as if there were nothing there at all!

This class will learn a new piece of choreography each week. We will explore specific technical skills, pathways and transitions that are particularly dance like in nature as we refine and develop our movement quality though practice and drills. We will also examine the space between the fabric loop and floor and supported floor choreography to enhance your hammock vocabulary. No background in dance or hammock is required.

Tuition: $208 ($10 late fee in effect June 28th)
Prerequisite: This class is a Beginning Sequences (1B) class. You must meet the Beginning Skills graduation requirements.

 
 

Dance Trapeze (1B+)

Tuesdays from 6:00 – 7:30 PM taught by Jenn B in the Ballroom.

In this class, we will explore skills that are inherently dance-like in nature, both on the trapeze and using the trapeze to explore and relate to the floor. Students can expect to learn to spin, circle, ascend and descend, transition fluidly and with ease in the air as well as demonstrate classic and newer styles of trapeze vocabulary.

Each week we will learn and/or review a series of skills and compile them into a singular piece of choreography to explore relationships, motif, transitions, build performance endurance and begin to collect new tools for movement quality.

Tuition: $208 ($10 late fee in effect June 28th)
Prerequisite: This class is an Intermediate Foundation class. You must meet the Beginning Sequences graduation requirements.

 
 

Rope and Harness

Wednesdays from 7:30 – 9:00 PM, taught by Tamara in the Ballroom. Four weeks only! August 1st – 22nd.

Rope and harness is just what it sounds like. You’re wearing a harness attached to one or two ropes from the front, back or sides. Access to the floor and partnering explorations offer myriad and exciting options for unique and wildly fun sequences and phrases. Invert, spin, run and circle without fear of falling or tiring your hands. WHAT?! Harnesses will be provided, but If you own a climbing harness, please bring it as this will cut down on changeout time.

Tuition: $104 ($10 late fee in effect June 28th)
Prerequisite: This class is appropriate for students at or above the Beginner Sequences level. You must meet the Beginner Skills graduation requirements or have your current instructor’s approval.
