The ABCs of Building An Act w/Sean Heisler

When approaching building an act, there are many paths to take, but too often we just stand at the crossroads and panic. This workshop is designed to help equip you with a bit of a toolkit as you approach creating something - whether it’s your first piece or you 94th. I won’t be creating choreography for you, and you’ll get out what you put in, but expect to walk away with a roadmap to help you navigate creation, the start of some sequences you’ve built, and a checklist of things to not forget about as you continue creating.

This workshop counts as a prerequisite to audition for the Aerial Artique Student Showcase. Attendance in at least 3 of the 4 sessions is needed.

Silks level 2 or rope equivalent
Lyra level 1 

$175 before 09/21

About Sean

An Engineer and Project Manager by day, aerialist by night, Sean found circus arts while at university and it was love at first fly. Since his Vancouver start in 2012, Sean has trained, taught and performed with Tyler Ayres in Calgary under TADA and broadened his circus exposure from aerial silks and trapeze to hand to hand partnering before a year away in Cambridge which led to his transplant to the San Francisco Bay Area where he trains at Aerial Artique. Known for dynamic drops, energetic pathways, and an overall exuberance, Sean brings an analytical mind to breaking down and building up tricks and a playful spirit to creating aerial artistry.
