Age 12+

Sat + Sun 3:00 - 6:30PM
With the ground as our first partner this workshop starts in a sensation based quest to have an honest relationship with gravity. Laying a foundation of respect and sensitivity in person to person touch, this workshop activates principles of contact improvisation mixed with BANDALOOP's signature on and off the ground dancing. Come solo or with a friend!

Mon + Wed 7:00 - 9:00PM
Public performance: Dec 15 8:00 - 9:00PM
Experienced BANDALOOP students interested in performing aerial work will revisit safety and fundamentals then look at aerial dance composition, repertoire and performance. Special attention is given to musicality, theatricality, improvisation as performance, considering site, and relating to gear/apparatus as a dance partner.

Scholarships and work study options are available for these workshops.
