This class is an approach to aerial dance through improvisation, partnering and Skinner Releasing Technique (see SRT description). We will explore approaching the trapezes as a way to create improvised and crafted solo dances or move as partners within an image based landscape. Formal aspects of trapeze technique will also be addressed as needed but the majority of the class will be exploratory and experiental. There will be solo times of partnering and shared group dances with the trapeze. Some aerial experience is required to attend these classes.
