GROUNDED AERIAL® DOUBLE POINT WORKSHOP
 
Explore rotation, bounce and swing while safely suspended from two side points. After mastering the basics in the safety of the air, we lower the attachment points to use the ground, allowing for even more dynamic movement possibilities.
 
 

 

 

 
MODERN & IMPROVISATIONAL

Pilobolus’ group work and investigatory nature greatly influenced Karen as a facilitator and mover. Performing around the world with this company has reinforced that dance is just as much a reflection of self-awareness as it is physical technique. While technique hones the body, it is the truth of the mover that holds our attention. Modern/Improv workshops focus on unveiling the inner drive and motivations behind movement. These workshop encourage movements potentially outside of participant’s comfort zone. We investigate breath, imagery, and brave choices as well as the artistry/commitment to all movements. Students take chances here which enable them to be the best performer; exploring options they might not have considered before. 


 
 

 
TUMBLING
 
Whether you’re a former Gymnast or a first time tumbler, Grounded Aerial® accommodates all levels to create a tumbling workshop which is both fun and challenging. We use progressive training techniques to enhance rotational control and vestibular awareness in a multitude of axes. Plus, it’s a lot of flippin’ FUN!

 
 

 
GROUNDED AERIAL® TEAM BUILDING

A group-effort class that focuses on team building and communications skills. Half of the class is in the air, and the other half is on the ground (then we switch). This workshop is for people that want to investigate group conflict/resolution. Via critical thinking, physical demands, and the exploring of movement, captivating group pieces are created…almost as an afterthought! Find out how to work together in a totally fun and innovative way. Often this course results in deep bonds due to the creative process that usually involves laughter, discussions, and focused concentration. You and your co-movers will be talking about this for years, and you’ll have the footage to show for it.
