This four-week workshop series will bring Aerial Dance choreography to life in a public performance at Om Factory’s Spring 2020 Student Showcase Celebration on Saturday April 4.
Amanda will spend the first few weeks teaching awesome and fun choreography and setting it to music, before taking the final week to get you performance ready! Expect to spend a lot of time working on smoothing out transitions both inside and outside of the hammock and the ways to move from floor work to the hammock seamlessly.
Participation in the final performance on Saturday April 4 is highly encouraged, but not required. There will be a dress rehearsal ahead of the performance on the afternoon of April 4th.
