When: June 1-2, 2019
Cost: $350 ($325 early bird registration before May 10)
Instructors: PJ Perry
Schedule: Sat & Sun, 9 am - 12 pm & 1 - 3:30 pm

Ride the momentum and roll with the punches as we explore planes of motion in the air. Rolling technique, momentum, and ease of motion are emphasized on the hanging rope, while off the rope we'll develop a basic kinesiological understanding of how to capture and continue momentum and power. We'll also explore how visualization can become a powerful tool in choreography development. Come join us and learn tools to be more courageous in your dynamic aerial body.

This workshop is geared towards the intermediate to advanced student with a current and regular aerial practice who is comfortable doing multiple inversions cleanly through short and long arm hangs, can maintain a single knee hang hands-free, find a back balance without assistance, and hold a front balance and a one arm hang for 10 seconds.
