Straps are fun! with Aaron Koz

Learn fundamental techniques for safe and effective training of aerial straps that will improve your power and control across all apparatuses. Straps are fun. Students warm up using a set of exercises designed to prehabilitate and strengthen the shoulders, then cover fundamental static positions on straps (meathook, inverted straddle, nutcracker, croc, support, flag, and side balance). Straps are fun.

The end of the workshop will focus on 2 and 1-arm spinning using the dynamic technique of flares to invert to different positions. I swear straps are fun.

This workshop will be beneficial for aerial artists who want to improve their spinning technique, meathooks/reverse-meathooks, roll-ups, and other skills on any apparatus. No straps experience required.

Prerequisites: 2 arm inversions of any kind (straddle-up, tuck-up, pike-up). 1-arm hangs with engaged shoulders for 10-20 seconds (or 2-arm for 30), and 20-30 second wall handstand or 45-second plank.

Handstand Foundations workshop with Leah Samelson

This workshop focuses on the basics of hand balancing: finding your alignment, learning to balance with and without a wall, and mounts/dismounts. We will address common problem areas with personalized exercises that improve body awareness, strength, and active flexibility. These techniques are not only great for beginners but also crucial for intermediate students to master before moving on to more difficult tricks. Note-taking and questions are encouraged throughout, and we will be discussing the best training techniques to avoid injury and ensure progress. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the “how” of holding a handstand, and greater confidence and stability upside-down.

This is a great workshop for:
-beginners, those new to inversions
-people who practice at home looking for technical tips
-those who have reached a plateau in their progress
-anyone wanting to develop an efficient, safe handstand practice

ABOUT MACA:

I started with photography in 2015, in Chile.

From that moment, the camera became the means to freeze and share what stimulates me. That's why what I like most is to work with artists or get lost in cities and find corners or situations that catch my attention.

When a scene generates something, inspires or mobilizes me, I know it's a good time to be captured.
In the photo sessions, I connect with what is happening around me and I become part of it. I move through space, I lie on the floor, I look for the right angle, I smile and sometimes I even get excited. The best photos come out when something is happening on the other side, when the feeling is mutual.

I am passionate about art in all its forms and those who believe in what they do. I feel fortunate to be part of it and be able to transmit what it generates, help perpetuate it.

I work outdoors and with natural light. I believe that there is no way to replicate the perfection of a ray of sunlight from the right angle. I like to look for locations that adapt to the objective of the session and represent the person being photographed. I like to be clear about the tone and the message sought to be able to communicate it through the images, that is why it is important for me to really communicate the people I am working with.

For inquiries, you can send an email to denoia.macarena@gmail.com. Your questions are welcome!

Silks games and creation

6:00 PM18:00

Silks games and creation

New year new fun!

Join in for this workshop of silks games turning your brain to new ways of being in the air. Through collaborative games, we can find creative new pathways and wrap ourselves in exploration! For this workshop, we will play games that challenge students to think outside of using their aerial apparatus for only tricks.

Some of the workshop will be focused on sequencing and how to change and expand your own typical movement patterns. Other areas of the workshop will be focused on working in groups to create a scene or feeling for an audience. We will also play with character development and ways to convey those characters in the air. Students will walk away with new ideas for performance options, and games they can use to create future work.

We will play, as well as create, in this workshop with Sierra Camille.

Early Bird price of $40 with promo code Sierra17

$50 after 12/14

Toning and Sculpting for Legs and Feet

Come tone, sculpt and polish your lines in this 2 hour intensive with professional aerialist and dancer Micah Walters.
