Shapeshifter: Transforming Classic Moves into Undiscovered Creatures

$60.00

Work a new angle! This workshop is designed to develop dynamism and versatility in our core aerial skills by way of reshaping common lines and forms to broaden the expressive range. We will begin with exercises to increase active range of motion in all major joints, as well as training exercises for improving proprioception, our body’s sixth sense of knowing exactly where it is in space. We will address “proper” alignment in some of the most-common aerial forms, then the real fun begins as we stretch, twist, skew, and fold ourselves to find new and powerful expression in often-overlooked moments.

Instructor:
April Skelton

April Skelton is an aerialist, educator, and dance trapeze evangelist based in Colorado. She is the Education Director at Frequent Flyers Aerial Dance in Boulder. April has been working in aerial arts since 2005, after beginning her own training at Canopy Studio in Athens, Ga., under the direction of Susan Murphy. Out of that community of Southern artists, April adopted and helped develop the particular dialect of dance trapeze she speaks most fluently: a merging of vertical skills borrowed from aerial fabric and sling with the dynamic precision of static trapeze. She is honored to teach and perform at the inaugural Seattle Aerial Dance Festival.
