Workshop 1: Friday, September 15th, 5-7pm
Workshop 2: Saturday, September 16th, 2-4pm
Workshop 3: Sunday, September 17th, 11am-1pm
 
Level: Intermediate/Advanced – Participants should feel confident with a range dynamic beats and technique.
 
A large reason for perfecting dynamic technique is so that we can harness enough power to create a moment of weightlessness. In this magical fraction of a second we have the opportunity to release, to twist and flip. Learning these specific skills removes the predictability of wrapped drops and adds a dynamic and explosive quality to choreography.
 
In this workshop we will apply your knowledge and technique of dynamic movement. Using a variety of beat pathways, students will learn new entrances into wraps, open drops and a range of release moves. Students of various levels will be guided through these skills with the appropriate progressions so they can continue the mastery at home. We will also explore C-shaping technique and it’s applications in a variety of roll ups, rotations and open drops.
 

Straps with Juan Luis

As part of the Rope and Straps Immersion Weekend, The Factory is excited to offer the following workshops with Juan Luis.  Workshops can be purchased individually for $70, or $180 if you register for all 3.
 
Workshop 1: Friday, September 15th, 7-9pm
Workshop 2: Saturday, September 16th, 4-6pm
Workshop 3: Sunday, September 17th, 1-3pm
 
Level: The workshop is open to anyone who has some experience in aerials.
 
This workshop will cover basic exercises and technique corrections. We´ll move forward step by step, everyone at his or her own level, no rush but a constant training. The less we know and the more we ask the more we learn, so it’s important that everyone feel free to ask for help at any time. We will explore advanced exercises for those who are at an intermediate/advanced level. We´ll also do conditioning - it’s needed – as straps demands a lot of energy and strength but at the same time its all about feeling and flow. It will give us the time to improvise a little. I will do some little sessions of stretching and a final massage with everyone.
 
At the end of this workshop, we will be doing more with less effort and have a better understanding of our own body up in the air, being more conscious of ourselves.
