Harness Dance Technique Workshop
This 4-week workshop is designed to introduce students to the basic fundamentals of harness-based aerial dance. Students will focus on single-point suspension. Each session will introduce principles related to safety, stamina, floor and wall-based flying and repelling. Courtesy of Zaccho, all harness-based equipment will be provided. Participants should bring layers of clothing that will go under the harness. Students who participate in this workshop are encouraged to enroll in the subsequent Harness Dance Performance Workshop.
Taught by Kelly Kemp from Feb 28th - Mar 21st 2015
