August in St. Louis @ The Bumbershoot Aerial Arts

Research and Destroy: Vertical theory abstract though
In this class we will look at how skills and theories of points of contact, weight shifts, dropping, lofting, and body facings transfer between vertical apparatus. We will research wraps and learn to recognize how they are holding us up and leading us around. Together we will find inventive ways to enter and exit skills. This mixed level class is for both the intermediate and advanced student who want to gain awareness of how wraps function. Must come with an open and curious mind and be able to make a catchers and s wrap in the air.
Sunday August 7th 11am-1pm

This class is for aerialists interested in experimental partnering and duo/ensemble work. We will focus on partnering, collaboration, and floor-to-air exits and entrances, using skills and theories borrowed from contact improvisation and movement studies, such as rolling and skipping points of contact, releasing, weight shifts, balance/counterbalance, all in context to your apparatus and partner. prerequisite: for the student who has taken at least 2 sessions at Bumbershoot in silks 1 or rope 1.
Sunday August 7th 3:15-5:15pm

In this class we look at tools to access the “tricks” we want to learn with building blocks and discussions of the physical mechanics and landmarks of wraps. We will meet you at your level and work with the body you have to deepen understanding and discover your potential. Prerequisites: An open mind and willingness to try things. Must be able to invert in the air over and over again and climb to the top 3 times without touching the floor at the bottom.
