(open to intermediate & advanced aerialists with experience in Silks)
Learn perspectives in finding transitions from one lovely silk skill to another. As aerialists we are often taught to complete one skill then back out and begin the next skill. What if we could find connection points to allow our aerial dances to transition seamlessly and flow without interruptions? This workshop will focus on transitional material that can be adapted, personalized and styled to create new and interesting pathways. Attendees will be challenged to learn a series of combinations and then make them their own through the course of exploration.
