Workshop: Vertical Dance Partnering – Silk/Rope
When: 2pm – 4pm, Sunday Dec 9th
Where: Arcadia, Founder’s Studio
How Much: $60
Intermediate + on rope or fabric, basic partnering experience on any apparatus is encouraged but not required
The vertical apparatus allows for a unique and compelling way to interact with a partner using tension and height. Not only are some skills and effects are only possible with more than one person, but the relationships and transitions between them can be beautiful, dynamic and surprising.
Beyond simply introducing some cool skills and transitions, this workshop will explore the various methodologies to alter the state of the vertical apparatus in a pair or group setting using the floor and our partner. Spins, Orbits, Mounts, Shapes, Climbs, Dance Steps and various other explorations can be expected.
