Walking the wire can often be a solitary experience so don't miss this chance to meet up with fellow funambulists to work with tight wire dancer and coach Ariele Ebacher. We will have several wires rigged at various heights so that you can try out new things down low and work on perfecting the skills you already have at 6'. Ariele will lead participants in some group exercises, both solo and partner work. Most of the weekend will be spent coaching individuals at whatever level they are currently at and guiding them towards the next level.

Pre-requisites: Participants must have a solid foundation and experience on the wire and should be able to cross forward, backward, turn, etc without falling off the wire. Bring your wire shoes and fans (if you use one)!

About the Instructor: Ariele Ebacher came to circus from the worlds of dance and theatre at age 21. She learned the art of wire dancing while on tour with Circus Smirkus, and then moved to Chicago to work for The Midnight Circus. She has traveled the world working in traditional, theatrical, and contemporary circus. Some of the companies she has worked for include Midnight Circus, The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, Zoppe Circus, NoFit State Circus, Circus Flora, Flynn Creek Circus, Cirque Mechanics, and most recently Big Apple Circus. In addition to her work as a performing circus artist, Ariele has coached tight wire and other circus skills in circus schools around the country. She has coached both the camp and tour at Circus Smirkus. In Chicago she taught young people at Circesteem and adults at Aloft Circus Arts.
