TWO ROPES AND A BAR : EXPLORING DANCE TRAPEZE

Level: Intermediate

It all starts with Two Ropes and a Bar. The perfect gift for the moving body. Support and freedom, simplicity and complexity, frame and space. In this workshop we will dive into various topics as it relates to this apparatus’s unique construction: moving through and around, wrapping, shelves, dynamics and pathways – taught in short relatable sequences.

Saturday May 4th
11 - 1pm
DANCE HAMMOCK
 

Level: Open/all levels, but some aerial experience is recommended 

Hammock has been a long time favorite of mine because I feel like I can simply DANCE! Without the entanglement of a fabric tail or the defined edge of a steel bar my body feels as though it can move as freely as if there were nothing there at all!

In this workshop we will explore specific skills, pathways and transitions that I think are particularly dance like in nature.

We will also examine the space between the fabric loop and floor, how these two can meet and interconnect to create spins, circles, transitions, mounts and supported floor choreography to enhance your hammock vocabulary or create an entirely new performative experience. No background in dance or hammock is required.

Saturday May 4th
2 - 4pm
FABRIC WITCHCRAFT

Level: Intermediate or Int + on fabric

The allure of fabric is truly multi dimensional. Its beautiful, tactile and confusing. It can seemingly defy physics. Wraps, shelves and connections can appear and disappear in an instant. Complex but stable architectures are constructed out of nothing.

In this workshop we will explore some really fun examples of knots, hitches, releases, wraps and fabric theories that simply DO NOT SEEM POSSIBLE or are totally surprising to even an educated eye.

Sunday May 5th
11 - 1pm
FRESH FABRIC IDEAS

Level: Intermediate or Int + on fabric

Bored with fabric? Need something new? How do other people source new ideas? How can you learn to create your own work? Learn how to ask the right questions of your practice to develop a truly unique style that CONTINUES to inspire both you and the people around you.

One of the best byproducts of as much travel as I do is I get to interact with people creating new work everywhere! Join me to explore some recent revelations of mine as I explore this #aerialnation. In this fabric theory heavy workshop, students can expect to explore new skills, ideas and transitions via exercises in this inevitably evolving art form.

Sunday May 5th
2 - 4pm
CREATING CONTINUOUS MOVEMENT (FABRIC and/or ROPE)

Level: Intermediate or Int + on fabric and/or rope

This workshop will explore a selection of the fundamental pieces and parts of ascending, descending and rotational movement. Students will then learn a specifically designed sequence that emphasizes structure, progression and the methodology to combine it all to tell a mesmerizing story.

Students can expect to learn new skills and methods that translate and interconnect in many meaningful ways. Together we will twist, spiral, invert, roll, wrap and construct our way up, down and through the vertical canvas.

ABOUT JENN

When not on the road Jenn resides in the magical wonderland that is the Pacific Northwest in her beautiful tiny off grid home with her two weenie dogs. Jenn has been immersed in aerial arts since 2008. She is driven by her focus on fabric (silks) and sling (hammock) and her first love trapeze [of all sorts]. She also enjoys exploring cord lisse, cloud swing, lyra, net, rope & harness and anything else someone puts in front of her. She has coached, choreographed and performed around the world including over 30 US states, China, Italy, Germany, Austria, Canada and Mexico.

 As an Aerial Coach, she seeks to provide the highest quality progressive instruction to aerialists of all abilities from novice to professional performer. Her mission as a human is to cultivate a warm, non-judgmental learning environment that fosters community, to build physical and emotional strength within the individuals who participate in this environment and methodically construct a vehicle by which to create art.
