Beginner Aerial teaches even the most mortal of us to fly like superheroes, discovering new heights to which we can push our bodies. Students will learn the very basics of how to hold each apparatus all the way to poses and transitions! We work with aerial lyra (AKA aerial hoop), hammock, and silks.
It can be difficult to create a dance in the air instead of showing off pose after pose. In this class we focus on making aerial choreography an amazing, beautiful work of art. We begin class by learning dance choreography grounded on the floor, then work our way upwards into the lyra. We push musicality by aiming to hit poses at certain counts in the music and finding new, odd shapes to create. If you're looking to perform, compete, or just sharpen your skills, this is the class for you.
Must be able to invert into the lyra and be in the air for over a minute.
The Mobi, created by Staza Stone (instagram: ) is the love child of a lyra and trapeze with an extra twist thrown in. Looking very much like a conch shell, Staza named the mobi after the shape of the Mobius Loop. This twisty shape provides tons of opportunity to create new and beautiful poses and transitions. When I purchased the mobi it was one of only two in the US - mine and Staza's.
Currently held at The Vertitude on every second Friday of the Month. Don't miss a chance to play on this rare, beautiful apparatus!
All the S-Wraps
True to its name, All the S-Wraps is all about the S-Wrap. This is a pivotal aerial silks knot that allows for the famous Wheel Down as well as a bazillion different moves. We focus on multiple ways to enter the s-wrap and begin to work on controlling a Wheel Down. Depending on the level of students, we can progress to training a No-Handed Wheel Down.
Currently scheduled for 8:30 pm Friday, November 22 at The Vertitude.
