FLAIRIAL DYNAMITE: An Aerial Silks Workshop (2 Hrs including warm up & cool down)
Do you want to put your own personal signature on a move that everyone else can do? Are you at the point with your silks training where you watch yourself and it doesn’t look as exciting as it feels? Through learning new sequences as well as working with positions you are already
familiar with, we will incorporate new silk manipulation, body positioning, and spinning to give you the tools to develop unique and dynamic work. Let’s show that silk who’s boss!
Prereq: 1 Straddle up in the air, Hip Key in the air
Maximum: 8 students
