SOMATIC AERIAL WORKSHOP with
Solo Repertory Workshop & Performance Opportunity
Join us in learning Blind Flying, a solo from Fly-by-Night’s evening-length work, The Amelia Project, based on Amelia Earhart and other early aviators. The work challenges the dancer to hone their somatic skills because it is done blindfolded. Through repetition and faith, the dancer learns how to become aware of everything in their spatial landscape without using their visual sense.
Each class will begin with a somatic warm up.
This workshop is recommended for advanced dancers. The six minute dance will be taught in 5 classes with the option of returning to perform in an informal showing on a 6th day.
FEES: $125 = 5 classes / $40 = single drop-in class.

What might advanced dancers get from our Aerial classes? Dive into opportunities to morph your kinesthetic awareness with technical knowledge and you will find yourself moving with greater ease when in the air, on the studio floor, or walking down the street. Improvisational structures provide guidance for explorations while also allowing options to explore your own movement expression. Aerial Dance skills are integrated with meditative imagery, hands-on partnering work, and informal discussions that allow students to learn from one another and explore in a myriad of ways.
What might Beginners get from our Aerial classes? Tap into your inner self and improve your kinesthetic awareness with our meditative and improvisational approach to Aerial Dance. Learn basic hangs for low-flying trapeze and how to improvise your own dance within set perimeters. Technical clues are given for basic skills about flying, floating, and laying out in space and these clues allow you to dance with a sense of ease and delight.
