More about Veronica!

Veronica is a professional circus performer with over 15 years of performing and teaching experience. She is currently Head of Soft Aerial Apparatus at Circus Center in San Francisco, as well as Head Coach of the San Francisco Youth Circus. With an emphasis on foundational excellence, Veronica helps students develop proficiency and confidence that allows students to develop their own unique aerial style.

An aerialist of elegance and true excellence, Veronica Blair has studied with some of the most celebrated and prominent artists in her field, including trapeze great LaNorma Fox, Ringling Bros. first African-American Aerialist Pa-Mela Hernandez, and the renowned “God Father of the Tissu” Gérard Fasoli of Centre national des arts du cirque / Cnac. 

Veronica started her acrobatic career at the age of 14 with Make*A*Circus, a community based circus. In addition she trained Chinese Acrobatics under Master Lu Yi with the San Francisco Youth Circus. Her first professional performance was at the age of 17, making her one of the youngest professional African-American trapeze artists in the U.S. Shortly after, Veronica was personally selected by Cedric Walker, the founder of the Universoul Circus, as a single trapeze artist. Under Mr. Walker’s supervision, Veronica rapidly developed as an aerialist, and was the show's resident aerialist for 5+ years.

Veronica has since performed with several other renowned groups and productions around the globe such as AntiGravity, Universal Studios Japan and Warner Bros. Music. She has been a part of Germany’s most successful circus show, “AFRIKA! AFRIKA!” Veronica also was the lead aerialist in KAMAU’s “BooDha” music video with over 100k views.

This workshop takes place mostly on the ground but with some time spent in the air.

The Lab
Apr
16
to May 14

The Lab

You can think about your aerials with 3 pillars; conditioning, technique, and artistry. In this class, we’re going to set aside the first two (how often does that happen!) and explore the last one. It’s the pillar where expression, emotion, and styling reign supreme but for many of us it’s the one that is the scariest. There isn’t a recipe to become artistic, no step by step guide. So instead, it’s time to roll up our sleeves and follow the advice of an amazing woman; “It’s time to take chances, make mistakes, and GET MESSY!”

Classes will focus on drills that force a creativity in the same way a deadline forces productivity, and they’ll take you outside of your usual practice motions. Drills from Rain Anya, Rachel Strickland and Kerri Kresinski will feature among others to assemble a toolkit of ways to tap into your artistry. Classes are drop in, but like any other muscle your creative muscle gets stronger the more you use it, so repeated weeks are highly encouraged.

Pre-Reqs: Level 3 or higher is required as confidence in the air is essential to ensuring that any mistakes are purely creative ones.

This is a special 4 week class series. To enroll please sign up as you would a regular class.

Silks Sequencing
Mar

7:30 PM19:30

Silks Sequencing

This workshop focuses on fabric theory and using fundamentals to further explore in the air.

We will look at how your basic skills will provide building blocks for more complex sequences. Coming from over 20 years of aerial experience Xochitl has worked to develop a workshop that leaves you with a deeper understanding of the apparatus and its possibilities.

Unique acts come from individual research, getting to that place of research requires you to know the foundation in and out. Although we will be glimpsing at advancing your more basic skills, this workshop will mainly focus on learning sequences that utilize these fundamentals and we will break down how you can create different possibilities with a similar concept.

Pre-Reqs: This is an all levels workshop. Students should be comfortable with climbs and other fundamental aerial moves.

Add on Drops for Fabric

Big drops can be scary and confusing, but sometimes they are just a sequence of simple movements all stacked together.

This workshop will explore drops that fall into this category. Students will leave with a better understanding of deconstructing drops. We will focus on the technique used to change direction in the air, the acuity required to construct new drops and a systematic approach to walking out of complicated scenarios.

Students can expect to work on conditioning and direction changes in the sling, fundamental wraps and simple drops with precision as well as work toward executing more advanced and complicated drops.

Pre-Reqs: Prerequisites: Ability to identify 4 basic wraps: Catcher/S-lock/Figure 8, Hiplock, Proficiency with windmill (wheeldown)

Obscureography for Sling

Obscureography for Sling

Sling is my absolute favorite! It’s the perfect mix of fluidity, contour continuation and dynamic freedom (in a supported setting). It allows for concepts that are not possible on any other apparatus, giving it a vocabulary and movement style all its own. Join me to discover my particular brand of aerial sling panache I’ve spent years developing.

Examples may include: unusual mounts, alternative and asymmetric set ups for dives and drops, direction changing drops, thready and unexpected pathways, intriguing sculptural shapes and of course, obscure aerial items of interest.

Pre-Reqs: basic forward dive to crucifix, ability to invert from standing in sling

Sourcing Movement for Aerialists
Feb
17
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 17th & 24th from 5:00pm-7:00pm

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.
