Have you ever spun on your apparatus and found that you can’t stand still enough to pose afterward? Do you get dizzy spinning at the speed of a rotisserie chicken? Or do you already love spinning but struggle to maintain your spin throughout a whole sequence of performance? Come learn about the mechanics of spin, how to combat dizziness, and get some tips and tricks for speeding up and maintaining spin. We will talk through the mental gymnastics and science of dizziness, and the physics of spin and how to control it. Perfect for people of all skill levels, but come prepared to practice!
Avery began her circus career at the age of 11 at Circus Juventas in Minnesota, though her performance career began much earlier. Avery has been a performer as long as she has been able to understand what a stage was. At the age of 16, Cirque Du Soleil proved a life-affirming experience and she decided to pursue circus professionally. Since the beginning of her experience, she has had the opportunity to train under and alongside renowned coaches and performers from around the world. These people and their incredible cross-cultural experience made Avery into the versatile, experienced performer she is today. With training in everything from Chinese fan dance to physical comedy to aerial cube and nearly everything in between, Avery is a jack-of-all-spins artist who brings personalized and professional acts to each and every performance.
