Aerial Dance and Technique with Wailana Simcock

Wailana Simcock

June 27, 2013 - July 1, 2013

Each day we will begin with conditioning the body both on the floor and on different aerial apparatus like the fabric, trapeze, lyra, and spanish web. We will also incorporate modern dance technique not just for warm-up on the floor, allow this to influence us as we rise and begin to dance in the air.

We will focus on safety, body and spatial awareness, new and old aerial technique, creative expression individually and collectively, and venture into improvisational aerial dance and performance.

Open to all levels.

3 day workshop: Fri/Sat 9-12AM and 3-6PM; Sun 3-6PM and 8PM performance.
