Aerial Dance Level 2: Lyra (instructor approval) with Kezia Holm
Sign up now!
Wednesdays 5:30 pm. Transfers to Kezia on September 6.
Prerequisite: Aerial Level 1 classes and instructor permission.
Given the lyrical, gracefully acrobatic movements aerialists can perform on this apparatus, it is appropriately called “lyra”. While upper body strength is cultivated by practicing lyra, it also provides beautiful resting poses.
This class is for students who are able to get on and off the lyra without a spot. Students will learn basic poses and variations under the lyra, straddles with variations, poses in the lyra, and balance poses. Contra-indications for aerial classes: glaucoma, heart-conditions, fused spine, pregnancy beyond doctor recommendation. Clothing requirements: tight-fitting; no zippers or metal; under-arms covered. No jewelry.
Kezia aims to inspire others to live to their full potential by being open and chasing their souls’ passion. Aerial holds a special space in her life. It sparked a fire that allowed her to explode into a whole new rainbow of color and creativity. Kezia took her Aerial Fundamentals and Lyra teacher trainings from the esteemed NECCA, the New England Center for the Circus Arts, and her Aerial Yoga training from Wendi Lynch of Aerial Yoga Hawaii.
Kezia first dove into flow arts in 2008 when she fell in love with a hula hoop, appreciating its freedom and beauty in the expression. In addition to aerial dance, Kezia is also devoted to other flow arts practices, including horseback arts and yoga. By practicing gratitude for all teachers, experiences and opportunities she has had along the way, Kezia continues to enhance and share her knowledge through study, practice and teaching. Kezia has had the opportunity to study under a number of Acro Yoga Instructors including during her Yoga Teacher Training.
