Aerial Performance & Act Creation is a two-hour four-session workshop series focusing on the process of aerial act development! One week after the series concludes, participants will present their acts in a Cabaret Evening at OM Factory!

In this workshop we will explore performance, musicality, story, character and audience engagement through movement, experimentation and play... in the air and on the ground!

The tools and techniques of this workshop are designed to help everyone from first time performers to seasoned professionals, and anyone in between. Lastly, costumes and confidence come into play as we polish your act. Choose your favorite apparatus from silks, lyra, rope, hammock, or a duo act with a friend! Participants are encouraged to dream up anything their imaginations want to explore.

NOTE: Students must be able to attend all sessions and be able to perform skills on the apparatus of their choice prior to enrolling.
