Can’t get enough of aerial silks? For students who have advanced beyond Aerial 1 and are looking to learn new skills, or for the more experienced aerialist looking to refine and perfect your repertoire – this is the series for you! Come join us! You will be preparing for a travel/adventure themed performance for our Merry and Bright celebration on December 17.
Students will build upper-body and core strength, increase range of motion and flexibility, and get in tune with their creative side. The classes will focus on climbs, drops, inverts, foot locks and descents on the fabric. Other skills may be taught as students make progress. This series will focus on making aerial fabrics safe and accessible to everyone in an encouraging and fun environment.
Prerequisite: Instructor approval. Must have completed a minimum of 1 Aerial Level II committed series and/or be able to execute the Aerial Level 2 class skills. Must be comfortable with climbing, foot locks from a climb, straddle backs from a climb and supporting your own body weight for an extended amount of time.
Megan has been spinning in the silks since March 2013 and hasn’t made her way down yet. She even continued her practice in Singapore during her semester abroad in school! She began dancing lyra and trapeze shortly afterwards and loves it just as much! Aerial is the perfect balance and outlet to her awesome, yet hectic architecture career.
Megan trained under Ukoyia Mastin from NECCA (New England Center for the Circus Arts) and mentored Heather Booth, original owner of Miraas Aerial studio in Boulder and lead aerial dance teacher at Still & Moving Center. Megan is a naturally gifted teacher. As an aerial teacher and practitioner, Megan is excited by the challenging journey that she plans to continue for the rest of her life. Megan loves with her students the fun, happiness and peace of aerial in a safe, positive and encouraging environment!
