All Wrapped Up – Aerial Hammock Workshop

Wraps and transitions in aerial hammock

When Sunday, November 21, 2021 from 2-4 pm
Cost $50 (+$5 registration fee for non-registered student)

Students will learn a series of entries, wraps, drops, and transitions, such as crescent moon, 360 from two different entries, cross-back straddle parallel and box climb which will be combined at the end of the workshop to produce a full sequence! Part of warm- up and conditioning will include stations with different mounts & entries. As part of a long cool-down, some aerial recovery will be included that incorporates the hammock as a stretching aid, which can easily be transferred to a knot after training silks. Students will learn techniques that they can incorporate into their own cool-down routines.

Students must be able to hang in the air with bent arms for at least 5 seconds, straight arms for at least ten seconds, and invert in the air.

Aerial Course Descriptions and Requirements:

Aerial 101 – We start from the very beginning and will primarily focus on silks and lyra, where you will learn all of the essentials such as basic mounts, climbs, foot-locks, poses, and beginner sequences. You will also learn conditioning techniques that you can work on at home, in between aerial sessions. Available for beginners ages 9 and up.

Aerial 102 – We will build on the foundational poses and sequences and begin to piece them together in the air. Students will build the stamina and endurance needed to fly for several minutes at a time. This requires not only strength, but also a deeper understanding of aerial theory, and knowing which poses can transition well from one to the next. We will also take a deeper look at technique, focusing on perfecting lines, extension, and timing. Available for ages 9 and up. Pre-requisites for Aerial 102: Students must be able to fully execute Russian climb, traditional climb, at least one entry into hip key, at least one-foot single foot lock, egg beaters (o double foot locks) on silks. On lyra, they must be able to fully invert, mount to a seated position, execute a straddle back balance, and be comfortable with using the top bar. Students must have either completed Aerial 101 or have teacher approval. (Videos can be emailed to sarah@rogueworx.net for approval.)

Aerial 103-Performance Intensive – Students will choreograph and perfect an aerial routine to music of their choice. They will have teacher guidance and feedback, as well as in-class critiques. There will be a stronger focus on technique than there was in lower levels. Students will also gain a new understanding of musicality and storytelling as they relate to movement in the air. The intensive will culminate in an in-studio performance, where family and friends can see the final product. Students are asked to bring a notebook, writing utensil, headphones, and a way to listen to music independently (i.e., phone or iPod, etc.) to each class. Pre-requisites: Students must be able to execute at least 3 poses or sequences in the air (on either lyra or silks). They must be able to stay in the air without coming down for at least 2.5 minutes. Teacher approval required for entry. If a student is new to Forever Dance, they may submit a video to sarah@rogueworx.net for approval

Aerial Open Gym –  Pre-requisites for Aerial Open Gym: Students must have either completed Aerial 102 or have teacher approval. (Videos can be emailed to sarah@rogueworx.net for approval.
