WHAT TO EXPECT
My low hoop love came from an interest in parkour and a desire to traverse space. When I first started dabbling in parkour, the power, speed and momentum executed by parkour athletes and the space they occupy with a kind of arrogance, made aerial seem so contained and restrictive in comparison. So I have taken some of these observations and in an attempt to find that sense of freedom of movement and power I love about parkour movement and combine it with what I adore about aerial, which is dancing and musicality. Merging parkour technique with aerial technique seems to create a beautiful Yin Yang like effect, a feminine and masculine coming together.

In my low hoop workshop, we will explore powerful spinning, irreverent shape making, how to ground and use the legs in that space between floor and air, falling over, falling down and melting, using the rigging point as an earth-ing point for dynamic movement. We will also explore that space under the hoop and through the hoop.
