This workshop will introduce dancers to acrobatic skills and concepts designed to expand their movement vocabulary, creating new pathways to enter and exit the floor, through the air, and land with lightness and mobility. Drawing material from a wide range of acrobatic styles, dancers will explore both isolated movements and proper sequencing aligned with momentum. Safe progressions to learn new skills and practice existing ones will be emphasized, along with enhancing proprioceptive senses while airborne.
Although no one is required to attend both sessions, Week 1 and 2 will feed into each other; covering different skills and movement pathways each week.

PREREQUISITES: general body awareness, willingness to explore, and the abilities to attempt a cartwheel and hold a plank for 45 seconds.
