MELT: An afternoon intensive on finding your unique style in performance

  • Aerial Artique 132 9th st. San Francisco, Ca USA (map)


An afternoon intensive about finding your unique style in performance


"How to stop posing and start being fascinating!"


Sign up for this workshop if:

  • You are searching for your own unique signature style in movement or performance
  • You are curious about aerial act development and would like feedback
  • If you are a fan of Rachel Strickland 
  • If you want to obtain new found confidence in your art! 


Let Rachel Strickland help you avoid the pitfalls of performing. Avoid the awkward pattern of putting trick after trick in a sequence without fluidity and grace which 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, fine ­tune your ability to master and manipulate your own, unique movement quality and most importantly 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 learned to your pieces.

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

Cost: $70/student

Instructor: Rachel Strickland
