Sourcing Movement for Aerialists
Feb
16
to Feb 24

Sourcing Movement for Aerialists

Sourcing movement is a workshop based on the assumption that there is a unique, creative current that flows through each individual, waiting to be accessed and expressed.

This is a workshop designed to support each individual artist in dipping into this creative current, allowing them to find their authentic self-expression and aerial voice. It is a workshop designed to de-habituate patterns, bringing intention and life to movement and the stillness in between...


We will begin with the concept of release; the release of tension in both body and mind. Starting on the ground we will explore the foundation of release-based movement, leading us into an exploration of intentional tension and the art of contrast. We will then apply these concepts to the aerial equipment, through various exercises (utilizing short choreographies) and improvisational explorations.

Sourcing Movement pulls from somatic studies (including Laban Movement Analysis), dance, Authentic Movement and depth psychology. After this 2-day, introductory workshop, students will have gained a greater range of movement expression, a deepened sense of embodiment, and the ability to sense of the difference between moving and being moved.

This workshop will be held on the following dates. 
Saturday, February 16th & 24th from 7:30pm-9:30pm

It is preferred that students attend both days. If a student is able to attend only one of the two days, they must contact Shannon at shannygray@gmail.com to see if it is possible.

If you book this workshop before January 1st you will receive $20 off by using promo code Source! (discount will only be applied to full series)

Pre-Reqs

  • Students must have basic aerial skills on their given apparatus and feel comfortable repeating a chosen (simple) choreography for at least four minutes.
  • Emailing Shannon Gray with your top two choices for apparatus, or with any questions, at shannygray@gmail.com

This workshop works to expand creative movement, expression, and the relationship we carry with our bodies, so dancers should be prepared to possibly encounter elements of vulnerability and comfort edge-pushing.

*All payments are non-refundable, but may be converted into Aerial Artique account credit (minus a $15 processing fee) if cancellation is received more than 72 hours before workshop.

The Buttermelt Workshop

1:00 PM13:00

The Buttermelt Workshop

Avoid the pitfalls of performing trick...trick...trick...that can turn all your hard work into a snoozefest. Without the artistic application of movement quality, aerial is just fitness. This workshop is designed to add expression to your work, fine­tune your ability to master and manipulate your own, unique movement quality, and take your aerial work from a series of tricks to something that can’t be duplicated. We will work alone and in groups and pairs in a fun, comfortable environment to become familiar with our own natural compulsions for movement and how to pull it out of thin air with confidence when you need it. This workshop takes place mostly on the ground but with some time spent in the air. 

The workshop will be followed by half an hour of rehearsal time in which you have the option of applying what you’ve learnt to your pieces.

Pre-Requisites: Willingness to learn, participation in the series, teachers status, or pre-approval.

*All payments are non-refundable, but may be converted into Aerial Artique account credit (minus a $15 processing fee) if cancellation is received more than 72 hours before workshop.

Aerial Artistry
Aug
11
to Aug 20

Aerial Artistry

This workshop is designed for people who are working towards performing (professionally or for fun), and is targeted at aerialists who want to be challenged outside of the typical aerial class structure. We will approach artistry from 2 different perspectives. 'Artistry technique' will focus on choreography, transitions,style, musicality, and technique. 'Artistry self-expression' will focus on emotional connection, dynamics, character, and connecting with yourself, your apparatus, and your audience.
Leave your linear training at home, and find your aerial artistry here.

Pre-reqs: 

  • You must already have a regular training practice and a solid foundation of the basics on your apparatus of choice.
  • You must choose 1 apparatus to work with for the duration of the workshop.
  • Before the workshop, you will need to choose 2-5 skills on your apparatus of choice to work with during the week. It can be a short sequence or just separate tricks. The skills must be easeful for you to execute without thinking. They should not be difficult. Leave your difficult/dangerous tricks at home for you to apply the work to after the workshop.
  • If you are at the beginner/intermediate level with aerial skills, you are still welcome to join. You DO NOT need to be an advanced aerialist. You DO need to be able to safely and easily execute your chosen 2-5 skills before you arrive.
  • You must be excited to advance your technical and stylistic execution, develop transitions, musicality, and your unique style, and be willing to dive into the hidden, juicy places of self-expression.

This is a multi-weekend workshop. The group will be meeting the weekends of August 11th & August 18th.

The days and times are as follows:

Friday 7:30-10:00

Saturday 4:00-9:30 (a 30 minute break is included)

Sunday 7:45-10:00

This is not a silks only workshop. Other apparatuses will be welcomed on the condition that two people request to work on that specific apparatus. Please email colleen@aerialartique.com to request any apparatus outside of silks.

This will be counted as a pre-req for soloists interested performing in upcoming showcases!

*All payments are non-refundable, but may be converted into Aerial Artique account credit (minus a $15 processing fee) if cancellation is received more than 72 hours before workshop.
